    1 T olive oil
    1 t onion powder
    1/2 t garlic powder
    1/2 t chili powder

In a greased (nonstick spray) slow cooker, combine the water, lemon juice, oil, and seasonings. Add chicken; turn to coat. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 170 degrees. Remove chicken and keep warm.

  • This is almost exactly the same as the Spicy Crockpot Chicken recipe I found years ago, except instead of onion powder we use a chopped onion. Other alternatives to put it over include couscous and sauteed squash ribbons. I also like to include some steamed or sauteed veggies on top with the sauce. - 9/1/11
