A super-simple set-it-and-forget-it recipe for garlicky, lemony chicken.
Serves: serves 4-5
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8-10 boneless chicken thighs
  • 10 cloves of garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 4 whole sprigs rosemary
  • zest of ½ a lemon
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • a few grinds of freshly cracked black pepper
  • Parmesan or Gruyere cheese, for garnish (optional)
  1. Drizzle your olive oil in the bottom of your slow cooker. Add in the chicken, smashed garlic, rosemary, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, cayenne, and black pepper. Use a spoon or your hands to mix everything up. Set your slow cooker on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours.
  2. Once cooked, discard the rosemary, plate, drizzle with a little bit of the juices and caramelized garlic from the pot, and garnish with grated cheese and/or black pepper, if so desired. This makes a great topping for a salad the next day!
