    WWAAAYYYY too much lemon pepper seasoning! My chicken was black from it (didn’t look anything like the photo above) and very spicey. I think maybe 5 tsp would be fine instead. And 8 hours on low made the chicken dry.

    Hi I was windering if I can put the chicken in the crockpot still frozen? Do you think it will still be good? Thanks, sounds really good. Always looking for easy gfdf recipes.
