I may not be the crock pot queen like Stacy here, but just reading her blog has given me a new found love for mine. I even asked (and received) a new, 7-quart slow cooker for Christmas. Yes, I think I am in love!

Lemon Pepper Chicken has been a favorite of my family’s since my husband and I got married. Actually, he taught me how to make it–before he “forgot” how to cook. 😉 I previously baked it in the oven, but it’s even better in the crock pot!

Easy, creamy–and most definitely a comfort food, this simple and delicious meal is sure to please both guests and family alike.

Without further ado, here’s today’s recipe for Easy, Creamy Lemon Pepper Chicken! I hope your family enjoys it as much as ours does!

That’s it! Easy Peasy! I often serve this chicken over rice with a side of green beans or asparagus and some garlic cheese biscuits.

*Notes: Although this recipe calls for cream of chicken soup, like the Myers, our family has been on a journey towards eating healthier. You can use the store-bought stuff in this recipe, but, please, promise you will at least try to make your own. It really is easy, and the store-bought stuff is full of junk. Stacy makes it this way, and this is how I make mine.

I purchase our lemon pepper seasoning in bulk at our local health food store. We LOVE lemon pepper at our house! I encourage you to check the label if you buy it at the grocery store. We previously used lemon pepper with MSG and didn’t even know it! I eventually want to try to make my own!

  1. I’ve always wondered how homemade creamed soup holds up in the crock pot! I’m definitely going to have to try it now.

  2. Thanks so much for having me again, Stacy! :) <3

  3. I want to thank you for the reference to “cream soup” one makes oneself. I am lactose intolerant so can not use the tinned soup & have had a difficult time making a substitute. This recipe will save me some serious headwork – I can use the lactose free milk or another non-milk substitute.

    • You’re most welcome……soup away! :-)

    • I hope one of the two recipes will work out for you!! I am actually wanting to experiment in making a dairy-free/gluten-free version sometime soon. My daughter is dairy/gluten free. My idea is to try rice milk and rice flour with maybe a little arrowroot or cornstarch to thicken it some more (if needed). I can’t promise that will work, but that’s what’s in my head! Of course, it would be a lot easier just to avoid one allergen or another. I really hope this works for you!

    I’m making the “cream soup” recipe today and I can’t think of a better recipe to try it on than Crock Pot Lemon Pepper Chicken. It should be a great Saturday night dinner.

  5. Thanks for linking to me. I need to make a dairy free cream of chicken soup so I can make this recipe! LOVE LEMON.

  6. oooh YUM! This looks so good. I love lemon but strangely I have never tried making Lemon chicken, go figure! This looks great and I love finding new crockpot recipes! Thanks for sharing :)

  7. I love easy crock pot dinners! It is so nice to come home after a busy day and discover a hearty meal waiting for me. Thanks for sharing this with the Hearth and Soul Hop.

  8. Stacy, I was exhausted today and knew I needed a quick, easy and healthy meal to prepare. This was perfect. I made some subs: DH doesn’t like mushrooms, so I used chopped zucchini and cream of celery. I added chopped onions and a little bit of white wine for flavor. At the end I also added frozen broccoli to get more veggies in the meal. I shredded the chicken and served over a mix of rice and quinoa. My husband rates my meals and this earned a 9.8 out of 10. Yea! Thanks :)

    Just surfed into this lemon pepper recipe, but think I will use it this weekend! But a warning I learned from a dietician about buying lemon pepper:READ the ingredients — for some the first ingredient listed is SALT!!

    • Yep, that’s what Erin said…I had no idea! I’ll be very careful going forward. I like to make my own seasonings when I can. :-) Enjoy the recipe!

  10. Tried this recipe tonight and it was a huge hit! The sauce was a little runny for some reason, but my husband (who’s Greek) had the brilliant idea of turning the leftovers into avgolemono soup. Just shred the remaining chicken and add rice! Yum!

  11. Christy says:

    I have it in the crockpot right now, it smells amazing! I almost want to eat dinner right now instead of waiting another hour :) I’m a fitness coach so I’m always looking for quick, easy and delicious dinners for my challengers — now I can add this one to my list. Thank you!

  12. I hope you loved every last drop!

  13. Just ate this for dinner over rice, it came out really well. I think I may try adding curry powder or cumin (both?) next time!

  14. Cumin! My fave!

  15. Just put this together in my crock pot…can not wait to see how it turns out! Thanks for posting this…it looks so good MMMmmm
