Healthy Slow Cooker Lemony Garlic Chicken

I love easy but healthy crockpot meals. Usually little to no work and the meal is delicious, but oh so healthy. This dish was just that found on I served it with pasta, steamed veggies and a light spinach salad. A great meal for a busy or lazy day!



1 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts (six halves)
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup water-I omitted since I used chicken broth instead
3 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp chicken bouillon granules-I just used a bit of low sodium broth
1 tsp parsley

Mix oregano and pepper and sprinkle evenly over chicken pieces.
In a large non-stick skillet, using medium heat, brown chicken evenly on both sides in olive oil.
Mix remaining ingredients and pour over chicken, bringing mixture to a gentle boil.
Pour skillet contents into slow cooker, cover, and cook on low for 6 hours (3 hours on high).
