Lemon Chicken


You had me at “cube of butter”. Seriously, I read “place one cube of butter in crock pot” and I knew we were meant for each other. This chicken is flavorful. It is moist. It is tender. AND it is low-carb?! Yuh-huh! Never mind that cube of butter. It is low carb!! Always looking for the good . . . .


½ c butter

1 lb. chicken tenders

1 pkg. Italian dressing (dry)

1 lemon, juiced


Place butter in crock pot. Layer chicken, dressing (dry), and lemon juice on top. Cover and cook on low 7-8 hours. Shred chicken and spoon extra juices over top. Serve alone, over rice or potatoes, or on buttered toasted bread.

    Hey, to make a creamy version, some friends of ours use this same recipe (using chicken breasts), then they pull it apart with a fork and stir in 1pkg. cream cheese mixed well with a can of cream of chicken (or celery) soup-warm and serve. Super yummy, though Mae prefers to stop at the point of this recipe. Just a variation on buttery chicken goodness :)
