Easy Crock Pot Recipes for Chicken

There are hundreds of ways to prepare chicken. In this article you'll find recipes for; garlic chicken, mushroom chicken and lemon chicken, 3 very different flavors.
I personally always use chicken breasts, however chicken thighs can almost always be substituted if your preference is dark meat. Since chicken thighs are smaller than chicken breasts increase the number of chicken pieces in any given recipe.
I also prefer the taste of kosher chicken and so never use salt in my recipes as kosher chickens are salted during the processing period. I also always thoroughly wash the chicken and then pat dry prior to beginning the seasoning process.
Garlic Flavored Chicken
4 chicken breasts (you can use either skin on, or skin off chicken pieces)
¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
¼ cup dry bread crumbs
¼ cup olive oil
2 teaspoons crushed garlic
In a sauce pan, combine the garlic and oil. Heat over very low heat so that flavors mix. Combine the bread crumbs and parmesan cheese in a dish that you can roll the chicken pieces in. Generously dip the chicken in the garlic and oil mixture, then roll in the cheese and bread crumb mixture. Bake as you would normally bake chicken, about an hour at 350 degrees.
Note: if you use an oil or bread crumbs that are garlic flavored, your chicken will have additional garlic flavor.
Mushroom Flavored Chicken
4 chicken breasts
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
1 soup can of milk
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
Pour one can of the cream of mushroom soup into a baggie and marinate chicken several hours. Cook chicken about 35 minutes in a 350 degree oven. While chicken is cooking, prepare the sauce. Combine the salt, pepper, milk, cream of chicken soup and the other can of cream of mushroom soup. Mix well. Remove chicken from oven and pour the sauce over the chicken and bake for at least 20 more minutes or until chicken is done.
Note: You can also add cut up mushrooms to the baking pan for additional flavor.
Lemon Chicken
4 chicken breasts
1/3 cup lemon juice
½ cup butter or margarine
½ cup flour
1 clove of garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon minced onion
salt and pepper to taste
Lightly dust chicken with flour. Melt butter and then coat chicken with butter. Put remaining butter in baking dish. Cook for 30 minutes in a 375 degree oven. During cooking, brush chicken with butter a few times.
While the chicken is cooking, prepare the sauce. Mix together the lemon juice, onion, garlic, salt and pepper. Remove chicken from oven and baste with sauce. Cook an additional 25-30 minutes, basting with the sauce a few times during cooking.
I hope you enjoy these 3 different flavors of chicken.
Bon Appetite!!
