Treat yourself to a flavorful and healthy chicken dish that requires little effort to make with this Lemon Pepper Slow Cooker Chicken recipe from Lauren @ BalancedForkHealthyLife.com. Made mostly with ingredients you probably already have on hand, this slow cooked dinner is a great option for busy weeknights. Set aside at least seven hours to make this gluten free recipe.

Ingredients
  • 3 chicken breasts (although thighs would probably be better)
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 2 cups gluten free chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary (you can substituted dried if desired)
  • 2 sprigs of fresh thyme (you can substituted dried if desired)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
  • 5 tablespoons lemon pepper
  • 2 cups rice
  • 1/2 package frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons champagne vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
Instructions
  1. Combine the chicken, wine, broth, mustard, rosemary, thyme, garlic, and 3 tablespoons lemon pepper in the slow cooker.
     
  2. Cook on low for 7 hours.
     
  3. When the chicken is almost done, separately cook 2 cups rice according to package directions.
     
  4. When the rice is just about done, add the frozen peas. Cover and continue to simmer until the peas warm up and the rice is fully cooked.
     
  5. Make a vinaigrette by whisking together the oil, vinegar, honey, and rest of the lemon pepper.
     
  6. Serve the chicken over the rice, and drizzle the vinaigrette on top.
