Crock Pot Lemon Garlic Chicken

Prep Time: 10-15 mins   Cook Time: ~6 hrs 

While I find that I use my crock pot less & less as the weather gets warmer, this dish has all the spring feels. And I also love how simple, healthy & flavorful it is. 

 

You can have a little fun by adding in or removing different veggies (I know mushrooms aren't always a crowd pleaser) but it's pretty basic & delicious every time! I love it served over rice with a side of greens!

Ingredients

  • 1-2 pieces of chicken per person (boneless or on the bone)

  • 1 head of garlic broken apart but not removed from skin

  • 2 sweet onions
