Weight Watchers Lemon Garlic Chicken

Being a mum means I don’t get a lot of down time. There is too much to be done in a day for me to spend hours in the kitchen cooking extravagant meals. As much as I would love to, it’s just not practical! However I still need to eat healthy especially as I’m doing Weight Watchers.

It is so important to me to have recipes that are simple, delicious, good for the body, and don’t take much time to throw together. These are all the reasons I love this Lemon Garlic Chicken with Potatoes and French Green Beans. It’s super tasty and takes hardly any time to prepare

Since it’s currently winter it is extra important to make foods full of good nutrition to help fight those winter bugs.That’s another reason this Lemon Garlic Chicken with Potatoes and French Green Beans is so good! It’s loaded with Vitamin C from the lemons and potatoes. Which helps you get over the flu or common cold faster!

For this recipe all you will need is chicken thighs, potatoes, lemons, lots of minced garlic, butter, green beans, and steak seasoning.

Slice one of your lemons and arrange the slices in one layer, keeping it on one half of the slow cooker. Distribute about a third of the garlic across the lemons. Feel free to add more! I love lots of garlic with any chicken meal. The lemons are really great because they add a delicious brightness to the dish and as the chicken cooks, the juices from the lemon cooks out and travels to the potatoes and green beans, coating everything in a yummy lemon garlic butter sauce!

Pat your chicken thighs dry with a paper towel and in a medium sized bowl toss the chicken with about a tablespoon (more or less depending on your taste) of the steak seasoning.

Arrange the seasoned chicken over the lemons and garlic, keeping on the one side still. Add another third of the garlic over the top of the chicken.

Re-using the bowl you tossed the chicken in, toss the cubed potatoes with steak seasoning to taste, and add the remaining third of the garlic. You can peel the potatoes if you would like but I don’t mind the skins, so I just leave them on.

Add the potatoes to the crock pot only using up half of the remaining space in the pot. Top the potatoes with three one TBSP sized pats of butter. Cover and cook for 3 hours on high.

In the last 30 minutes of cook time, add the green beans to the open space and continue cooking.

Roll the other lemon in half to help it release its juices, then cut in half and squeeze over a fine mesh strainer to catch any seeds that fall out.

Directions:

Slice one of your lemons and arrange the slices in one layer, keeping it on one half of the slow cooker. Distribute about  a third of the garlic across the lemons.

 

Pat your chicken thighs dry with a paper towel and in a medium sized bowl toss the chicken with about a tablespoon (more or less depending on your taste) of the steak seasoning.

Recipe Notes:

  • If you don’t have steak seasoning or just would rather make your own by mixing 2 teaspoons each of paprika, black pepper, and salt, as well as 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, onion powder, crushed coriander, dill, and red pepper flakes. This obviously makes more than you will need so just save the rest in a little jar (I like to save empty spice jars for things like this) for the next time you want to use this tasty blend!
  • Make the night before for an even easier time making this by…
  • If you have picky little ones that don’t like the steak seasoning, you can keep it simple with a little bit of salt and pepper. It’s totally customisable!
