Lemon Garlic Crockpot Chicken

Here is another absolutely amazing and simple crock pot chicken recipe.  You can legitimately make this amazing chicken in under 5 minutes if you are prepared, great for a during the week meal.  After you shred the chicken and put back in the broth, it just absorbs all the flavors of the garlic and onions and melts in your mouth.  The garlic is not strong at all, it has a nice rich nutty taste you will love so eat away, its good for you.  I got my garlic at Trader Joe’s and it was already peeled for $1.19, you can’t go wrong.  Enjoy
