I’m a big fan of all types of Middle Eastern food, and I think this Slow Cooker Middle Eastern Garlic Chicken from The Perfect Pantry sounds like a wonderful dinner any time of year. I love all the middle eastern flavors in this dish, and marinating the chicken before it goes into the slow cooker makes this extra flavorful.
I’d especially like this recipe when it’s hot outside and you can cook in the CrockPot without heating up the house and then serve the food with cooling additions like lettuce, tomatoes, pita bread, and Ranch Dressing. Those recipes where the slow cooker cooks the hot part of the dish and then it’s combined with cooling ingredients are what I call a Slow Cooker Summer Dinner! And I’d love using the slow cooker to make this on a hot summer day.
Ingredients for this recipe:
- Boneless and skinless chicken breasts
- sliced and mashed garlic
- kosher salt
- lemon zest
- juice of one lemon
- olive oil
- For serving, chopped lettuce, tomato, pita bread, buttermilk Ranch dressing.
Lydia recommends a 3 or 4 quart slow cooker for this recipe.
