Crockpot Lemon Sage Chicken

Sharing is caring!

Last week one of my friends was searching for a good chicken recipe. This got my mind thinking and before I knew it I was searching online for some Chicken Recipes I could toss in the slow cooker. Yes, even though I already had my meal plan done… but chicken for dinner sounded really good.

Add to that I had tons of chicken on hand and lemons, it made a great lemon chicken recipe sound even better for our week night! I gave the recipe my own twist.

lemon sage chicken recipe


  • 6 chicken breasts
  • 2 large lemons, sliced into thin rounds
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 drops Sage essential oil

Somehow I deleted all of the step by step pictures of this recipe from my camera.

The good news- this is easy.

Place the chicken breasts in the bottom of a 6 qt crockpot.

Add the Sage oil to the olive oil.

Drizzle the oil over the chicken.

Top the chicken with the lemon rounds.

Cook on high for 4-6 hours or low for 8 hours.

Serve it up. I served this with oven roasted asparagus and a spinach, strawberry salad. Once the chicken was done, dinner was served in minutes!

The sage gives it such layers of flavor.
