What can I say…I hate to cook. I mean really. You wake up at 4:15 a.m., get your workout in, get ready for work and out the door by 7 a.m. Work all day and then head home at 5 p.m.
Who really, really feels like cooking at that time?
I know that I don’t. But, yet, I do want to eat clean. I have had some amazing weight loss results in the last few months and I feel so good. The one thing that can jeoporize that feel good feeling is ruining my nutrition. So that must stay constant.
And, a crockpot makes it all so easy. Prep the ingredients ahead of time, stick them in the crockpot the morning of, press high (or low), and then walk away.
I am always on the prowl for new recipes. Rarely do I ever make the same dish twice. Thus, the title of this blog…”Another one hit chicken wonder from the land of the Crockpot!
I came across this great recipe…not sure who needs credit but someone does. I can’t say that I was the brainchild behind this one. Rarely am I ever!
But, I do know that I am going prep this baby over the weekend so on Monday morning, I just hit “play!”
Here it is:
– 8 boneless skinless chicken breasts
– 10 garlic cloves, finely chopped or minced
– 2 yellow onions, chopped
– 2 cups fat free, low sodium chicken broth
– 1/4 cup lemon pepper seasoning
– 4 tbsp paprika
– 2 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
– 1 tablespoon kosher salt
– 1 tsp lemon zest
Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Mix together the lemon pepper seasoning, paprika and salt. Coat the chicken with the spice mixture. Place the coated chicken in the crock pot and cover with the fat free chicken broth, garlic cloves, parsley and onions and lemon zest. Cook on low heat for about 3-4 hours (or until done).
