Lemon Butter Chicken 4 0 5 3

A very flavorsome chicken meal converted from an oven recipe with Paulene's advice (thankyou). The original recipe says you will ditch the chicken and drink the sauce...not far wrong. Serve with your preferred sides ( I do it with rice)

  • Prep: 20 mins
  • Cook: 6 hrs
  • 20 mins

    6 hrs

    6 hrs 20 mins

  • Yields: 5 servings


8 chicken thighs with or without skin

1 tablespoon smoked paprika

Salt and ground black pepper to taste

3 tablespoons butter, divided

3 cloves garlic, minced/ or 2 teaspoons minced garlic

1 cup chicken stock

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan

Juice of 1 lemon

1 teaspoon dried thyme

2 cups baby spinach, chopped

Optional - 1 cup mushrooms finely chopped


1Season thighs with paprika, salt and pepper

2Brown thighs 2-3 minutes each side in a frypan, with 2 tablespoons of melted butter

3Lay thighs on base of sc (6.5 l works best as no piling)

4Melt rest of butter in pan and combine cream, garlic, lemon juice, parmesan cheese, thyme and stock until lightly simmered for 2-3 minutes

5Pour over chicken and cook on low 5 hours

6Add mushroom and spinach and cook on low 1 more hour

7If you want to accentuate the lemon, try juice of 1.5 or 2 lemons and reduce garlic to your preference. The friend that gave me this recipe is special as she also introduced me to this amazing Group!!

I don’t want to dis anyone Recipe because this wasn’t Horrible, but for my family’s palette, it was a little bland, I even added the extra lemon and it just underwhelmed our whole family 7 of us ages 2 through to 41 it just goes to show that we really are all different and a recipe isn’t necessarily
Good or bad it’s just different for everyone and for us we really like a punch of flavour and this wasn’t for us
