Slow cooker recipes are nice to have for busy days. I am always looking for different ways to make slow cooker chicken breasts because my kids love anything with chicken. Slow cooker Mississippi chicken is another favorite of ours. This lemon chicken has a nice, bright flavor with the help of lemon juice and fresh lemon zest.
