Slow Cooked Garlic Lemon Chicken

This is my favourite slow cooker recipe. The chicken takes on the flavours of the lemon, garlic and oregano; it is so moist and tender.

Slow cooked garlic lemon chicken


4 – 6 skinless chicken breast fillets

3 – 4 cloves garlic, minced

120ml water

Juice of 1 lemon

1 tsp dried oregano

¼ tsp salt

¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper

1 chicken stock cube

Unsalted butter for shallow frying

Cornstarch (to make a tasty gravy)


  • Combine the oregano, salt and pepper in a small bowl, then rub the mixture into the chicken breast fillets.
  • Brown the chicken fillets in butter for approximately 5 minutes on each side.
  • Place the chicken fillets in the slow cooker.
  • Bring the water to a boil and add the chicken stock cube, lemon juice and garlic, stir until well combined.
  • Pour the sauce over the chicken fillets in the slow cooker.
  • Cook on high for 3 hours until the chicken is cooked through and tender.  Avoid overcooking or your chicken breast fillets will be too dry.
  • Remove the chicken from the juices, add a couple of tablespoons of cornstarch to the juice if you want to make a tasty gravy.

This slow cooked garlic lemon chicken is absolutely delicious served with homemade roast potatoes and vegetables.

    This sounds amazing, I love my slow cooker, I wonder how it would taste without the oregano though as my husband is not keen on oregano.
