Slow Cooker Honey Lemon Chicken
Honey lemon chicken slowly cooked in the slow cooker frees up cooking space and valuable time! The chicken is infused with a marinade of turmeric, honey, lemon and oil creating a delicious meal with a slightly sweet side.
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time2 hrs 4 mins
Total Time2 hrs 4 mins
- 2 large chicken breasts
- 4 small golden potatoes cut into quarters
- ½ lb. organic carrots peeled and sliced horizontal
- ¼ cup honey
- ¼ cup olive oil
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon of turmeric
- 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- ½ teaspoon dry thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Add a small amount of the marinade to a skillet to prevent sticking. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and cook in a skillet over medium-high heat for 2-minutes on each side until they begin to brown.
Transfer the chicken breasts to the slow cooker. In a small bowl whisk together the honey, olive oil, garlic powder, turmeric, dry mustard, lemon juice, thyme, salt and pepper. Top the marinade over the chicken. Add potatoes and carrots around the sides.
Slowly cook on low for 2 hours.
This calls for 2 chicken breasts but you can double the recipe. Just adjust the cooking time to 3-4 hours on low heat until the chicken is cooked thoroughly.
The potatoes come out slightly sweet, and taste like a sweet potato. If you prefer you can roast the potatoes separately instead.
To achieve the dark crispy look, I seared it really quick on the stove on high heat for 1 minute each side after slow cooking.
