The Frugal Kitchen: Crockpot Lemon Chicken

A simple, fast and frugal (low fat too) chicken dish that can be adapted to your family's tastes.


3-4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1/4 cup chicken stock
1 tsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. rice wine vinegar
2 tsp. finely grated ginger root
1 large or 2 small garlic cloves, sliced thinly
1 Tbsp. honey
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. hot sauce
1 lemon, sliced
1 Tbsp. corn starch
1 Tbsp. water
Cooked rice


Add stock, soy sauce, wine vinegar, ginger, garlic, honey, lemon juice and hot sauce to bottom of crock pot.  Lay chicken thighs on liquid and cook on high for 4 hours.  Turn crock pot to low setting, lay lemon slices over the chicken and cook for 1/2 hour.  Mix starch and water together and mix into liquid in crockpot.  Continue to cook on low for another 1/2 hour.  Shred chicken into bit sized pieces.  Serve over cooked rice.  Garnish with more lemon slices or chopped chives.  This recipe will serve 3-4 people and can be doubled or tripled.  Add more lemon juice or hot sauce according to taste.


God bless,
