    Juicy & flavourful. Used 1/2 cup of homemade chicken stock (made with bony chicken, salt, & water) instead of chicken bouillon & water.

    Browning the chicken first was key to chicken in the slow cooker! It fooled my family - they don’t like slow cooker meals.

    This was very good. If you have yo cook it on low all day simply add more water, chicken bouillon and lemon juice. The leftover juice tasted great on brown rice. 😋

    Terribly bland and dry. We work so had to cook it on low over the day instead of on high for a shorter period. Maybe that effected the dryness but I can't imagine that changed the blandness.

    Made this for my family- I did use organic chicken broth (probably 2 cups, estimate) instead of chicken boullion. Was delicious, I used chicken thighs and breasts; chicken was falling apart, so tender and yummy!

    I made this with boneless skinless chicken thighs and it turned out great! The only changes I made was to double the seasonings, lemon juice and garlic and I also added a few tablespoons of cornstarch mixed with a little water to thicken the juice at the end. The whole family loved it, will definitely make again Thanks for the delicious recipe!

    Overall this was very good however when I checked to add parsley and baste the chicken all the liquids were gone. Next time I would double the amount of liquid.

    So delicious!!!! I actually didn't have the lemon.. what!? But it turned out so good and tender. Will make again with lemon to taste the real deal!
    It turned out great! The butter, lemon juice, and chicken bouillon worked perfectly together to make a delicious broth and the seasonings selected were a great choice. No complaints. I just used a bit more seasonings and lemon juice and water.

    I will not make again. It was very dry. Might be okay with chicken thighs?

    It was really good. I don’t have a slow cooker so I cooked it slowly on the stove & it came out just as good.

    I would eat this again. Like others have said, it doesn't need as much time in the slow cooker as the recipe states. I also slightly increased the portions of the ingredients to allow for enough rub on the chicken.

    Delicious, I used some preserved lemons that I had and they gave it more flavor, all tough I didn't remember the salt that I used before so it end up a little bit to salty.

    This is the 3rd time I have made this dish and it is always a hit and always great my husband and kids love it. Easy to make and consistently turns out the same.

    Amazing ! Only thing I did differently was to add a little flour/water mixture to it at the end to "thicken" the juices it cooks in. Absolutely delicious , we make this 3- 4 times a month and switch out the sides we serve with it
