Lemon Feta Chicken - Slow Cooker

The intent of this blog is make a practical list of recipes that I can keep returning to that the whole family enjoys.  Here is my first slow cooker recipe I'm including.

1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
1 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 1/2 pounds meaty chicken pieces (I used breasts)
1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
2 tablespoons snipped fresh Italian parsley

1) Shred the lemon peel off the lemon

2) Take some nice photos of this lemon peel, outside, because it is actually not raining, and there is even a patch of sun!

3) Cut some rosemary from your rosemary plant

4) Grab the salt and the garlic

5) In a small bowl, combine lemon peel, basil, rosemary, salt, pepper and garlic.
Lemon Mixture

6) Sprinkle lemon mixture evenly over chicken; rub in with your fingers.  Place in the slow cooker, pour broth around chicken in cooker.

7) Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 5-6 hours, or high for 2 1/2 - 3 hours. 

8) Using a slotted spoon, transfer chicken to a serving platter; discard cooking liquid.  

9) Sprinkle chicken with feta cheese and parsley.  Take a photo when you cook this meal in the morning, and there is enough light to take a photo of the finished product!
