Lemon Herb Crockpot Chicken

**This is a recipe I shared as a guest poster over on the delightful blog Is This Really My Life? several weeks ago, and I thought I’d share it here as a last-minute idea for a delicious Valentine’s Day dinner.**

This Crockpot Lemon Herb Chicken recipe is a meal my mom always made and we loved it growing up. And now I make it for my family often; it’s definitely one of those go-to recipes that I always have the ingredients for. Plus, it’s so easy to throw together and leave it to make my house smell divine–it’s almost embarrassing to write a whole post about it. :) I must say, I LOVE MY CROCKPOT (it’s awesome and red). Let’s get on with the recipe, shall we?

ingredients-for-lemon-herb-chicken Recipe for Crockpot Lemon Herb Chicken

Boneless, skinless chicken breasts or chicken tenders

2 cans cream of chicken soup

1/2 soup can of water

1 heaping Tbsp. Lemon & Herb seasoning (I use McCormick)

(optional, see below) 1 cup flour

(optional) 2 Tbsp. olive oil

Directions:

Heat oil in skillet. Coat chicken evenly with flour and brown on both sides in hot oil. Season with salt and pepper.

**This part is optional. I don’t always brown the chicken before I put it in the crock-pot. In fact, I usually just throw in frozen chicken breasts that I’ve cut in half because it takes very little time. I am lazy!**

Spray crockpot with Pam and place the chicken inside. Meanwhile, combine the cream of chicken soup, water, and lemon herb seasoning in a bowl and mix it all up together. Then pour it over the chicken in the crock-pot. Cook on low for about 6 hours.

If I’m in a bit of a hurry and don’t start this early enough in the day, all is not lost! :) If this is the case then I use frozen chicken tenders because they are smaller and cook faster. I put my crock-pot on high for about 3 hours and it still turns out just delish. YUM!

It’s great served with brown rice–place the lemon herb chicken on top of the bed of rice and drizzle with the extra lemony gravy from the crockpot. It is also yummy over mashed potatoes. Plate it up with your favorite veggies and some fresh french bread and you’ve got a meal!

Bytheway, for this particular dinner and photo I made delicious baked zucchini fries with panko crumbs from Our Best Bites as the side dish and they were a hit! Yummy and healthy.

I made a cute 4×6 recipe card! You can click on it, download it to your computer and print it for your recipe files if you’d like.

    I’m going to have to give this a try with some low fat cream of chix soup. Thanks for sharing and for the cute card!

    Help!–I can’t find any Lemon and Herb seasoning. I’ve been to 4 stores without any luck. Does McCormick still make it? Any suggestions?

        Vicki, thanks for answering this question! I have been out of town and haven’t had a chance to. :)

        Marielle, gosh, it has been hard to find!! It might have been discontinued, boo. If you can’t find it anywhere I’d be willing to buy some for you if I can find it—you could just pay me for it and shipping via paypal or something? I am going to the store soon and I will check. :)

    YES! Marielle, I have been on the same dang hunt for the stuff. Finally found it at Macy’s grocery store. I got it at the Clearfield/Layton, Utah location so if you are anywhere near there? I grabbed two bottles. I have also seen it at the Layton Target, but it was out of stock every time I went to get it.

    I am currently making a half portion of this for myself (so I can eat it tonight AND have leftovers). I decided to check on it since it was halfway done and I tasted the sauce and it was SO yummy!!! Thank you so much for this recipe! Now that I know how delicious it is I will be sure to make it for my boyfriend too since I know he’ll love it :)

      Nope, the flour and oil is only for browning the chicken before you put it into the crockpot. It still tastes good even if you don’t brown the chicken beforehand. :)
