What’s for dinner tonight?  How about my one pot crock pot wonder, Lemon Garlic Chicken with Green Beans.  Nothing could be easier and more satisfying for a weeknight meal. Make it tomorrow for a happy family!

Tip: Load all of the fresh ingredients, except the lemon juice into your crock pot the night before you want to serve this dish.  In the morning add the lemon juice and plug it in.

Lemon and Garlic Chicken with Green Beans

4 Boneless skinless chicken breasts

2 lemons, juiced and zested

4 cloves garlic pressed

2 sprigs fresh rosemary

½ teaspoon dried oregano

1 teaspoon dried parsley

1 pound fresh or frozen green beans

Salt and pepper to taste


Place chicken in the bottom of a slow cooker set to high.   Season chicken with spices, garlic, salt and pepper, next add lemon zest and juice to pot.  Add green beans on top of chicken, place lid on slow cooker and cook for 5-6 hours.

I am a lifestyle advisor with a passion for connecting families Around the Table for mealtime. We are becoming a society that doesn’t even speak to each other, texting and internet relationships are the norm and it is impacting our culture. I believe the human connection as we know it, is in danger. Finding time to spend together as a family unit can be difficult especially with dual family careers and children that are often hyper scheduled. My mission is to inspire families, with a no nonsense approach to real food. Gathering Around the Table is key to the foundation of familial relationships. Sitting down to a meal is much more than breaking bread, it is a bonding ritual for families that actually protects our kids from all the dangerous stuff in the world. With tips and techniques we can all get our families Around the Table!
