I’ve made a weight watchers Baked Chicken that is really similar to this slow cooker lemon pepper chicken. I will share both recipes with you.
The weight watchers recipe uses fresh herbs (although I never have fresh on hand-I use dried and still just as yummy) and lemon juice to give plain baked chicken fantastic flavor. These flavors would work well with turkey cutlets or white fish fillets as well.
Baked Chicken Weight Watchers
3 Points Plus Value, Servings: 4, Prep Time: 10 min, Cooking time: 35 min, Level of Difficulty: Easy
1 pound Chicken breast raw, without skin or bone, four 4 oz halves
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp olive oil
2 tsp Rosemary, fresh chopped
2 tsp Lemon Juice
2 tsp parsley
1/4 cup chicken broth (I’ve made this recipe without chicken broth)
1/2 medium lemon quartered for garnish
I added a couple cloves of garlic.
Preheat oven to 400 degress. Goat a small, shallow roasting pan with cooking spray. Season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper. Transfer chicken to prepared pan and drizzle with oil; sprinkle with lemon juice, rosemary and parsley. Pour broth around chicken to coat bottom of pan. Bake until chicken is cooked through, about 30 to 35 minutes. Garnish with fresh lemon and serve. Yields 1 chicken breast half per serving.
Slow Cooker Lemon Pepper Chicken
I love using my slow cooker. Its perfect for me and my struggles to have lazy days. This recipe had a very yummy flavor, the only thing I didn’t like was having to cook the chicken before I put it in the slow cooker. It does give the chicken a yummy texture-but if I’m in a hurry its not ideal. So next time if I’m running low on time, I’ll just throw it in frozen and try it that way. I also added a couple cloves of garlic with this. Enjoy! Recipe and picture from The Recipe Critic
