  1. This has got to be my new favorite OAMC recipe! Everyone raved about it! I was hoping for leftovers but that’s not happening

  2. 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.

    1. Marie – So sorry that the taste wasn’t what you expected. We certainly do appreciate your feedback. It helps us better serve you, the reader!

  3. 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.

      1. It was really delicious and it worked out great! I did 10 minutes and then an instant pressure release. I did use butter instead of ghee because I have never worked with it before.
        I love my IP and I keep trying new things. My favorite is a 15 bean soup. I just put the soaked beans in the IP with chopped carrots, celery and onion with stock or water. I use the soup or stew button and instant release. It comes out creamy and delicious because some of the smaller beans break down. Super satisfying!
