If you work long hours and don’t have the energy to cook a hearty meal, here is a wonderful crock pot recipe. The beauty of a crock pot is it simmers the juices together almost magically giving you a succulent and delicious meal. I recently found a cookbook on using crock pots and figured I would give it a try. I’m glad I did, because the meals come out tasting really good. The lemon chicken in this recipe is tender and juicy. You will be surprised like I was, at how easy and tasty your meals can be using a crock pot. This saves you time and energy from cooking after a hard day. So relax and enjoy a home cooked meal.
