5 Ingredient: Crockpot Lemon Garlic Chicken

Summer is here and it is hot!  When the air conditioner is cranking all day long the last thing I want to do is turn on the stove.  I love to break out the Crockpot in the summer because it is convenient heat free cooking!  I love the idea of freeing up my day to play outside with the kids and not having to worry about cutting our fun short to make dinner.  There is zero part of me that ever wants to break away from the nice weather to come inside and stand over a hot stove!  This recipe takes only 5 minutes to set up then you can just walk away until dinner time.  That to me is meal perfection.  You can even choose between a 3.5 or a 6.5 hour cook time.  Perfect for those beach days or aquarium trips, however you choose to spend your summer days!  This recipe makes a light and creamy slightly tart lemon sauce with a subtle garlic bite.  There will be enough to smother your chicken and also your sides which trust me, you will want to do.  Honestly, this sauce is delicious!  My entire family loves it.  The chicken pairs very well with white rice or stuffing and green vegetables like string beans or broccoli.  Bonus if their garden fresh!  Happy Summer 🙂

Need a Crockpot to start crocking your summer away?!  How cute is this Disney Themed one?!!  I’m in love, I may just need a second pot.  For those days when I need to double up right?!!  Or how about you buy one and I can live vicariously through you?!  That sounds about right!

All my love,
