Talk about an easy meal! This is it! It was extremely flavorful, but not overwhelming. I changed the recipe quite a bit from the one that I found on allrecipes.com. I did not feel like a heavy meal with pasta or rice, so we served this meal with couscous and loved it!
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 Tablespoon butter
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup chicken stock
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
In a bowl, mix the oregano, salt, and pepper. Rub the mixture into chicken. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Brown chicken in butter for 3 to 5 minutes on each side.
Place chicken in a slow cooker.
In the same skillet, mix the water, lemon juice, garlic, and chicken stock. Bring the mixture to boil. Pour over the chicken in the slow cooker.
Cover and cook on Low for 3 hours. With 30 minutes left to cook, remove chicken from crock pot and shred. While chicken is removed, add the sugar and cornstarch to the juice, then stir the shredded chicken back in and finish cooking. Serve over noodles, rice, or couscous.
