  1. I have been wanting to cook a whole chicken in my crockpot for quite some time. I am a bit hesitant because I stink at cutting chicken. I need to get over that. This looks fantastic. Thanks so much for sharing it with our Let’s Get Real readers. Do you have any tips or earlier posts on cutting a whole chicken?

  2. I love lemon pepper chicken but rarely make it! Thanks for the reminder, it’s going on our menu for next week! Loving your blog! You have so many fabulous ideas!

  3. Dana, I am just popping over from the Memories by the Mile Link Party. Your slow cooker chicken looks flavorful and appetizing! I want some NOW!! Great recipe you shared. I have pinned, liked and tweeted, and g+-ed. I would love it if you would drop by my site at http://www.kneadedcreations.com for a short visit! I will look forward to seeing you there!

  4. This looks delicious and my mouth is watering! I literally just took a few chicken breasts out of the freezer and was hoping to find a great crockpot meal to use them in. Lemon pepper chicken is a favorite in our house. I may have to experiment a little as I won’t be using a whole chicken, but looks great!

    1. Maureen,
      I am going to try this recipe and want to use breasts as well. I noticed you mentioned you were going to use them , too. How did they come out? What did you do differently? Would love to hear from you
