  1. In the bottom of a large slow cooker, add onion slices, chopped potatoes, chicken broth, and 1 teaspoon oregano. Stir to combine.
  2. Using a knife or your fingers, remove chicken skin and fat from chicken and throw away. Place chicken on top of potatoes (breast-side down, if possible) and sprinkle oregano and garlic powder on top. Pour lemon juice into slow cooker or squeeze lemons and add to crockpot.
  3. Cook until potatoes are fork-tender and chicken is cooked, about 9 to 10 hours on low or 4 hours on high. Garnish with parsley and serve.

Cooking Tip: Using a high setting on your crockpot reduces cooking time. However, if you know you’ll be away from home for 10 to 12 hours, setting up the chicken in a crockpot on low in the morning is a great option.

Keep it Healthy: Skin-free chicken is always an excellent choice for a meal since it contains less fat and more protein than beef.

Tip: Russet potatoes are usually the cheapest.
