- 2 tsp brown sugar
- 2 tsp lemon zest
- 3 Tbsp lemon juice

- Cook on low for 6 hours.
- Remove the chicken from the slow cooker.

- The white wine adds more flavor but can be omitted if you don’t wish to use it.
- You’re able to use other cuts of chicken such as chicken breast or chicken drumsticks.
- I recommend using fresh lemon juice for the best results. However, bottled lemon juice will work fine if you can’t get your hands on any fresh lemons.
