Gourmet Slow Cooker Chicken Scampi Recipe

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, salt, and pepper. Add the chicken breasts, seal the bag, and shake until the chicken is well coated.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown on each side, approximately 3-4 minutes per side.
  3. Transfer the browned chicken to the slow cooker.
  4. Using the same skillet, sauté the minced garlic and sliced bell peppers until they are just tender. Pour this mixture over the chicken in the slow cooker.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together the chicken broth, lemon juice, and Italian seasoning. Pour this mixture over the chicken and peppers in the slow cooker.
  6. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours, or until the chicken is tender.
  7. Before serving, sprinkle with chopped parsley and grated Parmesan cheese.

Variations & Tips

  • For a spicy version, add a teaspoon of red pepper flakes with the Italian seasoning.
  • For a seafood twist, add shrimp during the last 30 minutes of cooking.
  • If you prefer extra sauce, double the amounts of chicken broth and lemon juice to ensure there’s plenty for drizzling over pasta or soaking up with bread.
