  • 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)
  • Lemon slices (for garnish)


  1. In a bowl, mix the melted butter, chicken broth, lemon juice, minced garlic, dried thyme, dried rosemary, dried oregano, paprika, salt, and pepper to create the lemon garlic butter sauce.
  2. Place the chicken thighs in the crockpot in a single layer.
  3. Pour the lemon garlic butter sauce over the chicken thighs, making sure they are well coated.
  4. Cover the crockpot with its lid and cook on low heat for 4 hours. If you prefer a faster cooking time, you can cook it on high heat for 2 hours.
  5. After the cooking time is complete, check the chicken thighs for doneness. They should be tender and cooked through.
  6. Optional: For an extra touch of flavor and presentation, broil the chicken thighs in the oven for a few minutes to achieve a crispy skin. Transfer the cooked chicken thighs to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and broil on high for 2-3 minutes or until the skin turns golden and crispy.
  7. Once done, remove the chicken thighs from the crockpot and place them on a serving platter.
  8. Spoon some of the lemon garlic butter sauce from the crockpot over the chicken thighs for added moisture and flavor.
  9. Optional: Garnish with freshly chopped parsley and lemon slices for a bright and appetizing display.

Note: You can adjust the seasoning and lemon juice according to your taste preferences. If you prefer a tangier flavor, you can add more lemon juice.
