Why use a slow cooker to make chicken?

Using a slow cooker to make chicken recipes is so smart and simple. It takes away a lot of the stress of cooking in general. You don't have to hover around in the kitchen by the stovetop or oven, you just set and and walk away, go about your day, etc.

Another reason I like to use the Crockpot to make lemon pepper chicken is to keep it super moist and flavorful. You don't have to worry about the chicken drying out when you make it in the slow cooker.

Gone are the days of dry flavorless chicken, the slow cooker helps lock in moisture and flavor so that everything comes out tasting great and with very little effort!

You can also use boneless, skinless chicken thighs for this recipe if you prefer. The only difference is that they're a little bit more fatty than the breasts. Dark meat versus white meat in the crockpot is kind of just up to personal preference. I like to use the breasts because they are leaner but the thighs would be a bit more flavorful and possibly cheaper as well!

Use what you have or what you prefer, this lemon pepper chicken will come out great either way!
