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!

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

    • Stacy

      Good luck Anne! Now you can let your creativity fly!

      This should open up a whole new world of opportunity for you! Now, if only I can develop a good GF/DF version…!

    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.
    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

    • Stacy

      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.

    • Stacy

      We hope you enjoy it!

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

    • Stacy

      Not a fan of lemon, but Barry loves it!

    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 :)

    • Stacy

      I’ll pass that along to Erin! :-) So glad you enjoyed it!

    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!!

    • Stacy

      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!

  • Molly

    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!

    • Stacy

      That sounds delicious! Smart husband!

  • Stacy

    I hope you loved every last drop!

  • Stacy

    Cumin! My fave!

      I hope you loved it!
