    This is really good! I took my chicken out and diced/almost shredded it and I added some frozen broccoli and about a 1/4 cup of sour cream to give it a slightly creamy broth. Going to eat as is for me and either over rice or mashed potatoes for the family. Thanks for the recipe! - 7/25/11

    Mouth watering, moist, tangy, delicious and a hit with the whole family. DH called it the best sauce I've ever made. Took the advice of some other posters who suggested adding some cornstarch to thicken the gravy and a tiny bit of honey. Sooooo goooood!! This one's a keeper! - 10/3/10

    The basic taste was good, but it was pretty dry. I'd definitely make it again, but would add more liquid. - 11/23/08

    This is an absolutely delicious recipe. I found it on a different website before I even knoe of spark people and have made it several times. I think the nutrition information is wrong however. I don't think that is possible to be ONLY 65 calories. I wish it were, LOL!! - 5/16/09

  • We really enjoyed this and it was so easy. I substituted chicken broth in place of the water & bouillon. We will definitely have this again. :) - 4/5/14

  • I used Emerils Original Essence instead of oregano and parsley, but the dish was still great with mashed potatoes. Super easy way to do chicken in the slow cooker without a creamy sauce.

  • It was good. I also didn't brown the chicken...I am so rushed in the mornings, I just don't have time. I used chicken stock instead of the water/bouillon, and I omitted the salt. Next time I might try cornstarch to thicken the sauce. - 5/11/13

  • Family enjoyed this dish. However, I thought it was on the dry side. Six hours may be a little too long (low heat). Definitely will be making this dish again, but adhering to the changes. - 6/23/12

  • I made this tonight in my pampered chef 30 min chicken pot in the microwave...it was delish! My family loved it. The chicken breast was so tender. I sautéed asparagus and yellow peppers in balsamic vinegar and cooked brown rice to finish the meal. The sauce of the chicken was perfect on the rice. - 4/2/12

  • This was ok, and tastes like a bland, baked chicken. Since I cooked on high, I doubled the amount of water. - 2/7/12

  • very tasty--simple and easy, and delish. i agree with Manda2010 and definitely would add a bit more moisture, though... - 1/25/12

  • I thought this was pretty good. I used chicken stock instead of water. It only took 2 1/2 hrs on high to be done though that could be because I accidentally added too much liquid. I also used fresh parsley and basil instead of oregano & added lemon pepper to chicken before browning. Kids liked i - 9/7/11

  • This was fantastic! My chicken was still frozen so I skipped the browning step and just put everything in the crock-pot and it turned out wonderful. I served it with wild rice and steamed brocolli. Thank you for this wonderful recipe, I'll definately make this again :-) - 6/23/11

  • I made this yesterday, I was running late for work so I just dumped everytihg in the slow cooker skippingthe skillet portion (which I know adds a bunch of flavor). After I started I realized i left the lemon juice in the fridge at work but I had lim juce. I was worried but eneded up amazed!!!!!!!!! - 6/17/11

  • Really good and easy. I added some tarragon also. I felt like it needed more seasoning though. I added hot sauce on my plate. I served it over rice and with english peas. - 3/14/11

  • I made this tonight....the wife and the niece thought it was tasty. Admittedly, I did not follow the directions as the chicken was frozen. I just tossed all the ingredients in the crock pot and let it go. - 2/20/11

  • This was good. Hubby liked it, and he is anti "anything healthy." I did use lemon pepper instead of salt/pepper/oregano, and I doubled the liquids. Need to stir in crockpot every hour or so, to keep chicken from drying out. - 2/6/11

  • Has a great flavor and it makes the chicken very tender!!! I was bummed when there wasn't any veggies to eat with it that had the amazing flavor too! Still great though!

    And the boyfriend made it, he said it was easy to make! Woo Hoo! - 11/30/10

    Bit too lemony for my taste, and a little dry. But I might try adding honey to balance out the lemon flavor and add more liquid for next time. But overall a good meal. And very pretty too. :) - 7/20/10

  • I made a few changes. I also sprinkled lemon pepper seasoning on the chicken with the oregano and salt and pepper. I did not brown in butter- just put it directly into crockpot. Instead of lemon juice, I sliced a lemon and just put the slices on top of the chicken. - 6/2/10

  • This chicken was sure easy and was moist and tender, but was a bit bland for my family's tastes. I had hoped to use the sauce over rice, but it was too runny. Maybe it could be thickened. I did use it another night for the liquid in brown rice and it was good. The chicken was great for leftovers. - 1/26/10

  • WOW! This was fabulous! WE eat chicken quite often and this is already going into my permanent recipe book. The flavors were terrific. I marked this recipe because I was looking for slow cooker recipes but wound up cooking the whole thing in the pan and couldn't have been happier. Moist & Yummy - 9/4/09

  • On my "low" setting only needs abt. 4 hrs to cook. I used 5 tablespoons of lemon juice which was too much. I made gravy out of the liquid in the slow-cooker using cornstarch, & added honey to balance out the lemon. - 2/16/09
