Everyone needs an easy chicken recipe to turn to when they don’t have the time or energy to devote to a meal. That’s what makes spicy slow cooker brown sugar, garlic, and lemon chicken breasts so great. You put the chicken in the slow cooker, set it and go about your day. This slow cooker chicken recipe yields a tasty final product.
The chicken is sweet, the pungency of the garlic comes through nicely, the addition of fresh lemon juice brightens everything up and Seasonest Spicy makes it all the better. The Cajun kick it brings is downright delicious. Although not required, browning the chicken on both sides before slow cooking is highly recommended. Creating a caramelized surface lends a richer flavor to the final product.
