Lemon-garlic Chicken (Crock Pot)

1 tsp dried oregano
½ tsp seasoned salt
¼ tsp pepper
2 lbs chicken (breasts or drumsticks both work) **Boneless work great, too!**
2 Tbsp butter or margarine
¼ cup water
3 Tbsp lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp chicken bouillon
1 tsp minced fresh parsley

1. Combine oregano, salt, and pepper. Rub mixture onto chicken. Brown chicken in melted butter in skillet. Transfer to crock pot.

2. Place water, lemon juice, garlic, and bouillon in skillet. Bring to boil, loosening browned bits form skillet. Pour over chicken.

3. Cover. Cook on low 4-5 hours, or on high 2-21/2 hours.

4. Add parsley and baste chicken. Cover and cook on high 15-30 minutes.

Note: I added extra oregano and generously sprinkled with lemon pepper.
Serve over rice or pasta.
