Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken Thighs

Recipe Swap

Serves: 4


  • 8- boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • Lemon juice and grated peel
  • (about ¼ cup juice and 1 teaspoon peel)
  • 5-6 large garlic cloves, finely chopped (I LOVE GARLIC)
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons corn starch
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • Chopped parsley for garnish (optional)


Spray slow cooker with cooking spray. I used olive oil spray. Place chicken thighs in cooker and sprinkle with grated lemon peel, garlic and ¼ teaspoon of the salt and pepper. Pour chicken broth over the chicken.

Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours.

Remove chicken from the slow cooker and place on a warm plate. Cover and set aside.

In a small bowl, mix remaining ½ teaspoon salt, the cornstarch, lemon juice and heavy whipping cream and mix until well blended. Stir liquid into the cooker. Cover and cook on high for 15-20 minutes or until liquid thickens.

Plate your chicken then drizzle sauce over the chicken, sprinkle parsley if desired.
