How to Make Slow Cooker Lemon Pepper Chicken

Then, in a large bowl, combine your flour, garlic powder, paprika, lemon pepper, salt, pepper, olive oil, and chicken broth.
Next, add your chicken pieces in the seasoning bowl and cover them completely with your seasoning and place them in the bottom of your slow cooker on top of your onions.
Finally, pour your remaining sauce on top of your chicken legs in your slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours until the chicken is cooked to an internal temperature of 165°. Enjoy!
