Slow Cooker Lemon Basil Chicken~ the perfect weeknight meal!
There are few things that I make routinely but this-this is one recipe that I do. Whether I serve it over noodles or toss with pasta, ladle over a smashed potato or just on it’s own- this is a perfect one pot meal.
The idea is simple. Chicken breasts or pieces, lemon zest and juice, olive oil, garlic, shallots and basil. That’s it.
It cooks to a tender perfection and when you use boneless breasts you can simply shred the end result and serve a variety of ways. I even use the cooled cooked chicken for chicken salad. Talk about good!
I posted this picture earlier on Instagram and someone asked me for the recipe. I figured I would do something I NEVER do- make something and get it on the site the same day! So here you are. What I don’t have is a photo of the finished product. We were getting lunches together for tomorrow, the light was bad- I was distracted and I forgot. I write about real life here people! No staged photoshopped pictures up in here!
