When life (Riley) gave us lemons a couple of weeks ago it was like the world was our oyster, so many options, so many things we could make.

We made a G-d Damn Lemon Tart, I squeezed a bunch for some fresh and tart lemonade, and for some reason, the idea of a really lemon-ey chicken sounded really good to me.

As usual, I was right! The chicken was tart and flavorful and moist and a great addition to our plates.

Recipe type: Slow-Cooker
Serves: 6 servings
  • 3 lemons
  • 10 garlic cloves
  • 6 frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts

  1. Slice all the lemons into rings, and place enough to cover the bottom of your slow cooker.
  2. Place your chicken on top of the lemon slices, and then cover with the remaining lemon.
  3. Roughly chop the garlic and throw into the crock pot, sprinkle the pepper over it all.
  4. Set the slow cooker on low and cook for 7 hours.
  5. Serve with a side of veggies and a carb of your choice.

We served this over some garlic alfredo pasta with sauteed green beans and the Onion Tart.

Brie is a fair-weather foodie. She wouldn’t go as far as to say she has a love/hate relationship with food, because she loves food and food clearly loves her; it loves her so much that it holds on as tight as it can and never lets go; mostly in the middle region. Her cooking style involves a lot of butter or garlic or onions, things that have “creamy” or “cheesy” in the title, also anything that you could add bacon to. She’s been making the noms since she was tall enough to reach the counter, and has been eating for even longer*. Brie’s passion for cooking-slash-baking will fluctuate however, usually correlating with how sick she is of doing dishes. Never-the-less, her passion for eating (sushi, take out Chinese, hole in the wall diner-y type foods) is as constant as the sun, the moon, death, and taxes. She also sometimes talks in the third person; don’t worry, you’ll get used to it.
*Fun Fact: When she was 10-13ish, only 1 out of every 5 batches of sugar cookie dough would make it past the butter/sugar stage and end up in the oven instead of Brie’s stomach. #ThisIsWhyI’mFat
P.S. She also set the microwave on fire during the same era while making home-made microwavable popcorn. Pro tip: Alton Brown is WRONG and you cannot put a paper bag with staples into the microwave; things will go badly.
P.P.S Happy ending. Even though to put out the fire she threw a bowl of water onto it and shorted all the circuits, the microwave started working after a week and her mom was non-the-wiser.
P.P.P.S But, I guess not any longer…
