Low Carb Crock Pot Lemon Chicken (from frozen chicken breasts)

Ever plan to slow cook your dinner, but you forget to thaw your chicken?  This is an easy dish that is made with frozen chicken breasts. 

1/4 cup of olive oil
1 dry packet of Good Seasons Italian Dressing mix*
4 frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts
Juice of 1 fresh small lemon (this is a tad over 1 tablespoon)

For finishing:
Juice of 1/2 a small lemon
some diced fresh parsley and/or basil (optional)

Combine all of the ingredients in your slow cooker (except the “finishing” ingredients)
Cook on HIGH for 4 1/2 hours or until fully cooked and tender*
Remove all of the chicken from the slow cooker to a platter and finish it by:
– spooning some of the juice from the slow cooker over each piece of chicken
-drizzle the juice from 1/2 a small lemon over all of the chicken
-sprinkle the chicken with salt
-sprinkle fresh diced herbs over the chicken.

Carb Count:  Approximately 2 grams of carbs for each piece of chicken + 1/4 of all the sauce. 

If you do not want to use the dressing packet, you can make your own and just use 2 tablespoons of that  (just omit the sugar) http://allrecipes.com/recipe/italian-dressing-mix/

Cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of your chicken breasts and how hot your slow cooker cooks. 

This is the new slow cooker I just got (my old one suffered an unfortunate demise).  I am really enjoying it and plan to use it for years and years to come!
