Crockpot Lemon Chicken

Today was my first offical day of work since I left Honda in Feburary, it was a very overwhelming day (as is any job the first day). Last week when planning meals, I knew by the time I got home I wouldn't want to cook a big meal, so I planned a bunch of crock pot meals. Although this one wasn't my favorite, it was really nice to come home to a cooked meal. I found this recipe on one of the TheNest, cookbooks. It was a weight watchers recipe and thats what drew my attention but is not something I would make again.

Crock Pot Lemon Chicken (From: Whats Cooking Cookbook)

  • 6 whole boneless skinless chicken breasts ( I only used 2 for Adam and I)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 6 oz frozen lemonade concentrate
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water

Dredge the chicken in flour mixed with salt. Shake off excess and brown in a hot skillet.

Remove chicken and put in the crockpot. Mix the lemonade, brown sugar, vinegar (use regular vinegar if you prefer) and catsup and pour over the chicken. Cook on high for 3-4 hours. When ready to serve, remove the chicken to a warm platter and thicken the sauce with the cornstarch/water solution, and serve along with the chicken.
