Healthy Lemon Garlic Chicken

So one of the things that cooking has taught me is that eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring or bland. As I confess, that is one of the reasons why I find eating healthy quite challenging. But now that I have been cooking for the past few years I have a different outlook on cooking and eating healthier. I found a statement on Pinterest that I liked because is 100% true: “just because it’s healthy doesn’t mean it has to be boring or bland.”

This Lemon Garlic Chicken has undoubtedly confirmed that quote as it was so tender, juicy and delicious! The lemon juice added the perfect zing to the chicken.

I couldn’t believe the ease of preparation. The only thing I had to do was sear or brown the chicken for a few minutes on the stove then toss them into my crockpot along with a few ingredients. It was nice because I had the rest of the day to myself to do some chores and other stuff.

I’m sure that you are going to love how easy it is to prepare this recipe and your family is going to enjoy the taste.
