Yummy Recipe Wednesday! (Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken)

Hello again everyone and welcome to another Yummy Recipe Wednesday. Today I bring you a wonderful recipe for some of the tastiest chicken I've ever had. I love to use my slow cooker, especially for chicken, because it's just so easy and it makes your house smell wonderful. Today's recipe is almost a double recipe since you get to make a nice sauce with the juices right in the slow cooker. The sauce itself is just amazing in my opinion and I love to toss the sauce with some linguini or angel hair pasta and serve the chicken right on top. If you really want to make a nice pasta dish you could add some nice sliced mushrooms or another vegetable. This dish is actually pretty healthy with its high protein and low carbs and tasty on its own if you choose not to add it to some rice or pasta. Give it a try for yourself and see what you think.
