I can’t quite say enough about this Lemon Chicken Thigh dish. I put it together and I knew it would be pretty good… but it was quite a bit more than that. It was absolutely fantastic.
To start with, I’m always a fan of chicken thighs in the slow cooker. In addition to being super cheap, they just work better than white meat. They stay moist and super tender. So that’s why I chose thighs to use in this dish.
To get that lemony flavor, it doesn’t take much. Just squeeze the juice of 1 lemon in the slow cooker with the other ingredients. It’s the perfect amount of lemon flavor without being overly tart. The basil and thyme work really well in here too.

But it just wouldn’t be as fantastic as it is without the cream sauce. And this step needs to be completed at the end using a mix of cornstarch and half and half. I served this over rice and it worked so perfectly. The rice soaked up the extra sauce in the most yummy way.
