6-8 boneless chicken thighs (with or without skin)

1/2 stick of butter, sliced

1 teaspoon each of: onion powder, paprika, and garlic powder

Salt and pepper to taste

4 cloves garlic, sliced or minced

1 lemon, sliced

Zest from half a lemon

1/3 cup chicken broth


Step 1: Preparing the Chicken

Optionally, consider browning the chicken thighs before placing them in the slow cooker.

Season them generously with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika.

Step 2: Layering Flavors

Distribute the sliced or minced garlic and diced butter evenly atop the chicken.

Sprinkle the chicken with zest from the lemon and nestle lemon slices amongst the thighs.

Step 3: Slow Cooking to Perfection

Pour chicken broth into the slow cooker, around the seasoned chicken thighs.

Ensure the lid is securely placed and allow to cook on a low setting for 6-8 hours, alternatively 3-4 hours on high, until the chicken is thoroughly cooked and tender.

Serve the Lemon Garlic Chicken drizzled with its own flavorful sauce, and consider garnishing with freshly chopped parsley and additional lemon slices to enhance its visual appeal and flavor profile. Enjoy a dish that promises not only a symphony of flavors but also a wonderfully effortless cooking experience!
