Slow cooker Lemon Chicken Recipe
6 – 8 organic boneless skinless chicken thighs
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1 ½ tsp. Garlic powder
1 tsp. Ancho chile powder
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
2 Tbsp. maple syrup
1 organic lemon, zested, juiced
2 cups chicken broth
Salt and pepper
2 Tbsp. arrowroot
2 Tbsp. cold water
Handful of fresh parsley, chopped
2 Tbsp. clarified butter
Lay chicken thighs out and season with 1 tsp. Garlic powder, ½ tsp. Ancho chile powder, ½ tsp. Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Make sure to season both sides of the thighs.
Preheat a cast iron pan over medium high heat. When the pan is hot, add 1 Tbsp. clarified butter. Once it melts add the chicken thighs to the pan.
Let the chicken sear for 2 maybe 3 minutes max and then turn the pieces over and do the same on the second side.
When the searing is done, remove the chicken to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
Now you will notice bits of chicken in the bottom of the pan. This is where the magic is. Turn the heat to low and add another tablespoon of clarified butter to the pan.
When it melts, add the onion and saute for 5 to 6 minutes. Be sure to scrape the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon to loosen all the stuck bits.
Then add the chicken broth, lemon zest and juice, ½ tsp garlic powder, ½ tsp. Ancho chile powder, ½ tsp. Italian seasoning, 2 Tbsp. maple syrup and a pinch of salt. Stir to combine an then give it a taste to see if you need more of the spices.
Place the chicken thighs into a crockpot including any juices that accumulate on the plate. Then pour the sauce over the top. Lay several slices of lemon on top of the chicken.
Cook this on high for 3 hours.
Take the chicken out of the slow cooker and place them on a plate. Mix the arrowroot with the water until dissolved.
Pour this slurry slowly into the sauce in the crockpot while whisking. You can add as much of this as you want. Toss in a handful of chopped parsley and you are ready to serve this over rice, or mashed potatoes.

Advice For Baking Yeast Breads From Scratch
While many people would like to pursue a career as a chef, the time and training required to achieve this dream can seem monumental. However, cooking can be learned in short sessions. The following article will outline several simple ways you can enhance your cooking.
Get your ingredients squared away ahead of time. The prep work should be done before you even start cooking. Of course, cooking under a strict deadline can really increase stress levels. Do your prep work in advance, if you can.
When you are making stir-fry dishes, make certain the meat is thinly sliced on the bias. Getting the perfect cut can sometimes be a challenge. Cut your meat as it is still a little frozen and cut it at a forty five degree angle, with the bias.
If using oil in your cooking, pour it in the pan in an area away from the food. By the time the oil reaches the food it has been heated up and is ready to roll. This will enhance the flavors of the food when you’re done cooking.
If you do any lengthy cooking process like boiling, many of the nutrients will be cooked out. Pick methods that cook the vegetables quickly so they keep their goodness, or eat them raw.
When you cook vegetables quickly over high heat, their quality is best. If you slow cook your vegetables, they will lose their nutritional value. Vegetables cooked in these ways make healthier side dishes and ingredients in recipes. Learning to give them just a quick steam is the best way to cook them.
Knowing how to cook will always come in handy when you want to prepare a meal that impresses. In all cultures from around the world, we sit down to meals with friend and family. If you implement the tips in this article, it won’t be long before you are an accomplished cook and your dinner parties are the talk of the town.
