Slow cooker lemon, honey chicken and vegetables is a perfect meal for busy weeknight dinners.
This healthy dinner is easy, hearty, and full of flavor. The chicken is super tender and juicy and the best part is its all made in one pot.
Lemon, honey and garlic pair beautifully with chicken. The potatoes soak up all that delicious juice.
Tips for slow cooker lemon honey chicken and vegetables.
- Baby potatoes are great for this recipe, both gold and red work. If they are on the larger side then I just slice them in half.
- I use 6 large chicken thighs because that is my families favorite. But if you want to use breasts that would work also.
- We love green beans, and they cook to perfection when adding them the last 15-20 minutes.
- Broiling the chicken after its done is highly recommended. Chicken doesn’t ever come out of the slow cooker looking pretty. So broiling not only gives the skin some crispiness, but adds color too.
