I have to agree with the rest of the reviews. I didn't have chicken legs but bone in chicken breasts. This recipe was easy to follow and made with items that you will have in your cupboards. The only change I made to this recipe was to remove the chicken half hour before serving. I place in the chicken on a oven safe dish and covered it with aluminum foil. I then placed the chicken in the oven on a preheated 200 degree oven while I cooked the rice in the crock pot. I put in a cup and half of rice, turn the crock pot to High and cooked it in the juices for about half hour. I will test for doneness. This is a true keeper.
This was wonderful! I made mine using boneless/skinless Chicken Breasts, cut in half and used 2 lemons instead of 1. I also added a bit of extra garlic and a little more oregano. The end result was superb! I will definitely be making this simple yet rewarding dish again!
I doubled the veggies and lemon juice (they were very small lemons), left everything else the same. My goodness, it made an awful lot of juice. The first meal, we just ate it as is. It was ok, and the house smelled heavenly, but we weren't that excited about the food itself. However, I deboned and shredded the leftover chicken, added in a little extra broth (there was so much original juice, it didn't need much extra!) and some rice, and made a soup for lunch today. We decided we liked it better as the soup than the original dish, which bumped up my rating.
This was excellent and simple,cheap and full of flavour. I doubled the vegies and served it with some brown rice and steamed green beans.
This was wonderful! Rather than drumsticks I used some skinless chicken breasts and it worked really well with them as well. I served over couscous and which soaked up the juices and made a great combination.
Really tasty. I ended up using more chicken (4 1/2 lbs) and it turned out fine. I did not take the skin off - I thought it browned better with the skin and it would add more flavor. Very easy to pull off the skin once it is done cooking in the crockpot. Kids loved it!
I used all the listed ingredients, but altered amounts based on preferences- more veg, lemon and seasoning. Turned out great! I thickened the juices after cooking to make a light gravy. My family loved the flavour from the lemons. I served it with basmati rice which complemented the flavours very well. A very simple, flavourful and inexpensive meal!
This is a delicious and simple dish that we enjoyed very much. The chicken was beautifully moist and fell off the bone. Great for an easy family meal, but could be tarted up for a dinner party. Next time I make it, I will add some preserved lemon to add to the lemon flavour. Thanks for a great keeper!
Made for Oct. 2007 Recipe Swap. I put this in the crock pot this morning and then took my dogs for our usual Sunday afternoon hike. When we got back home and I opened up the door, my house was filled with a delectable odor. I was really looking forward to dinner, and I wasn't disappointed. The chicken was falling of the bone tender and juicy with a refreshing hint of lemon. Thanks, Chef floWer, for sharing such a delightful recipe.
Very good! My crock pot cooked it in 5 hours. It fell off the bone and so completed removing skin and bone. Served over rice.
