Slow Cooker (crockpot) Greek Chicken and Potato Recipe

I'll be going back to work soon so I'm working on my relationship with my slow cooker. Hopefully she'll help me out by doing the cooking for me while I'm at work. Then we can all come home to a hot dinner.

Today I made chicken and potatoes and it was delicious. I only had skinless, boneless chicken breasts but you could use anything you like. I bet chicken legs would be good in this recipe. The kids are one of the breasts before I too the picture just in case you were wondering where the 3rd one went.

This is the pulp from the lemon. Tasted great on my chicken.

3 servings
3 chicken breast halves
4 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered
1 small onion, roughly chopped
3 cloves of garlic, peeled
2 lemons, juiced
1 heaping tablespoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups chicken stock

Place the potatoes, onions, garlic and the juiced lemon halves in the slow cooker and toss together. Place the chicken on top. Mix the lemon juice, spices and chicken stock together and pour over the chicken and veg.

Cook for 4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low. Adjust the cooking time according to the number and type of chicken pieces you use.

Don't discard the lemon halves. The pulp scoops out so easily after cooking and makes a delicious garnish for your chicken.
