Comments

  1. This was disgusting. We took one bite and threw it out. Gross!

  2. This was awful. Will never make this again.

  3. Made this with 2 chicken breasts , smells amazing and the chicken was very soft BUT bad idea to add whole lemons. My chicken had a bitter aftertaste which I am suspecting was due to the lemon pith. Would add lemon juice instead.

  4. I agree…this recipe didn’t turn out as I expected. The lemons were too much. If I try it again, I’ll just use 1 lemon…or possibly just the juice of one, as suggested. I do appreciate this website and what it offers. I do wish I had read the comments prior to making this dish.

    Thanks for your time and efforts with the website…I will continue to use it and refer others to it.

  5. I think this recipe might have worked better for me if I had just used the juice from the lemons. At a certain point the rind of the lemon made everything taste bitter -when I checked it the first few times, it still smelled bright and fresh… But then when the chicken was done, I noticed that it smelled bitter. I only used 2 lemons and it was pretty intense so for my taste, it could be cut back a little more. I love the idea of this recipe! Maybe adding the lemon slices later in the cooking process?

    worst recipe ever. Chicken was inedible. waste of money.

  7. Tried this after a disappointing experience with another lemon garlic chicken slow cooker recipe and took your advice (below) and cut back on the lemons- we loved it! Thank you for taking the time to share this with us, especially since it’s available to us for free. Your effort is much appreciated!

    I read the comments but tried this anyway. I love lemon, but I agree, this was way too lemony! It tasted bitter and was barely edible. I won’t make again either – sorry!

  9. this was way too lemony, the sauce could not be used as is, I had to do a lot of doctoring to be able to eat it. I used 3 lemons for over 4 pounds of chicken. Will not make again

    i made this today and it was so juicy and flavorful! it smelled amazing when i opened the crock pot and my husband even commented when he got home. immediately after practically licking his plate clean, he states, “A plus, would eat again!” i guess we have a new staple! thank you!
