Slow Cooker Roasted Lemon Pepper Chicken

Hi everyone! I hope you’re ready for this week’s Christmas series recipe! Parrish and I decided not to do your traditional turkey or ham for this main dish but something a little different! Parrish has done an amazing Christmas lasagna and I’ve made a roasted chicken. BUT, not just your average everyday chicken. Slow cooker roasted lemon pepper chicken it is! YUMMY.

You could obviously make this any night of the week but I think it is an especially good idea for a Holiday feast! All you have to do Christmas morning is pop this baby in the slow cooker, then enjoy opening presents, spending time with your family, getting all your sides ready and then BAM! Perfectly cooked super moist chicken with it’s own jus. This can’t get much simpler!

    This looks so good. I’m always on the look out for more slow cooker recipes – especially this time of year when everything is so busy.

  7. I have been wanting to cook a whole chicken in my crockpot for quite some time. I am a bit hesitant because I stink at cutting chicken. I need to get over that. This looks fantastic. Thanks so much for sharing it with our Let’s Get Real readers. Do you have any tips or earlier posts on cutting a whole chicken?

    This looks delicious and my mouth is watering! I literally just took a few chicken breasts out of the freezer and was hoping to find a great crockpot meal to use them in. Lemon pepper chicken is a favorite in our house. I may have to experiment a little as I won’t be using a whole chicken, but looks great!

    This looks awesome, Dana! I’m glad you included the photos of how to put the spices and butter underneath the skin–that really helps! Pinning it now since it looks like a really inexpensive but tasty meal!
