This slow cooker Lemon Ginger Chicken is incredible! You’re going to love it!!

I can’t believe that we are still eating things like this Lemon Ginger Chicken in June, but here we are…desperately searching for cold weather foods to keep us warm. The weather this season has been absolutely ridiculous and as of this morning, the temperature is just 42 degrees Fahrenheit….in June…

It should be double that!

We should be eating salads!

Actually, you could totally put this chicken on a salad…just remove it from the sauce before creating the gravy.

It would be amazing!

But for now, here’s the recipe for this yummy chicken in gravy. Slop it on some buns or sandwich bread and call it good!

Or if you want to get really fancy, pour it over pasta, rice or even mashed potatoes!
