garlic lemon chickenIn the summer months, the last thing most of us want to do is slave over a hot stove or oven. I get a lot of use out of my slow-cooker in the warm weather because all I have to do is put the ingredients in and step away. This garlic lemon chicken is great for salads, pasta dishes, stir-fries, or even sandwiches.
