Lemon Garlic Crockpot Shredded Chicken

2015/01/img_1693.jpg

Sick of plain old chicken breast!? Try this amped up lemon chicken!

•8-10 thinly sliced boneless chicken breasts OR 6 regular chicken breast
•1/2c reduced sodium chicken stock
•1 whole lemon (juice and zest)
•1TBS lemon garlic Flavor God seasoning
• 2TBS Dijon mustard

Personally I browned one side of my chicken on a grill pan first but you can just throw it all in the crockpot to start. Place everything but the mustard in the crockpot. I cooked my chicken in the crockpot for 1 hour on high (I used the thin chicken breasts) if you use the regular ones you may have to cook longer. Once your chicken is cooked, place it in a stand mixer and add the Dijon mustard and one TBS of lemon juice. Mix until shredded and you’re done! This is such a nice alternative to just plain chicken breasts!

Cook your corn in pan that the ham was in until it’s roasted. Add your lemon juice and zest and corn to the sprouts and ham. Cook on low for a few minutes and You’re done! Salt as needed

I had already pan roasted my zucchini so I added that also.

Add a squeeze of fresh lemon and Serve by itself, over a salad, brown rice, or quinoa. SO GOOD! (You can also add avocado for a rich, buttery taste!)
