Slice breast in half lengthwise. Whisk eggs in one bowl and prepare a flour mixture with dry spices in another. I mixed flour with paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. I really love this combination, not too strong but flavorful and fragrant (from garlic).

Coat chicken breast pieces in the flour mixture first and then place them in the bowl with beaten eggs. Work with one breast half at a time. Bread all the chicken pieces and place them into a heated skillet with oil.

Cook over medium heat for 1-2 minutes on each side, until the meat, is cooked through. Do not cook them all the way through, just brown them for some color. Put them in the slow cooker, along with the seared breaded chicken breasts. There are a wide variety of crock pot sizes you can use, and my slow cooker has an 8 qt ceramic pot.

Add a generous amount of chicken broth, a generous splash of white wine, and a generous amount of butter. Slice up a whole lemon, and add it to the crock pot along with more lemons for an even more intense lemony taste. Close the lid and cook for 3 hours on LOW. Once cooked, open the lid and add chopped green onions on top. Enjoy your delicious crock pot chicken, Francese, for dinner.

WHAT IS CHICKEN FRANCESE

FRANCESE CROCKPOT CHICKEN is a traditional American recipe that is easy to prepare and can be improved for whatever the casserole needs. A typical crockpot meal is made with a combination of browned butter, flour, chicken broth, water, and a pinch of salt. The butter burns slightly when you add in the flour and it produces a rich, golden brown crust on the chicken.

CROCKPOT CHICKEN FRANCESE RECIPE INGREDIENTS

  • Chicken breast. If the breast is too big I recommend slicing it in half lengthwise.
  • Vegetable oil. Olive or avocado oils are my favorite. Oil is used to fry chicken in the skillet before slow cooking it.
  • Flour. All-purpose flour will work best.
  • Salt and pepper. Basic seasoning and a kitchen staple.
  • Chicken broth. The bouillon is used as a part of the lemon butter wine sauce to thin in.
  • Eggs. Eggs are needed for breading chicken. I used pasture-raised eggs from my local farm but of course, any eggs will work.
  • Paprika and garlic powder. Essentials for seasoning the chicken. Paprika also adds some nice red color.
  • White wine. Added to the sauce. Use just a splash and do not go with the wine you don’t like.
  • Butter. Choose unsalted butter for this recipe. Used for the sauce.
  • Lemon. Nice fresh citrus notes of lemon are essential for this crockpot chicken Francese recipe.

EXPERT TIPS

  1. Use only the wine you want to drink.
  2. Do not overcook.
  3. Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  4. Use unsalted butter.
  5. Add green onions on top to serve along with a crunch and vibrant color. Chopped cilantro or Italian parsley will work too (and smell amazing!).
  6. The internal temperature of cooked chicken is at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
  7. Use any size of slow cooker. My crockpot is 8 qt and it had lots of extra space. For 2 chicken breasts, 6 qt slow cooker will be perfect. 4 qt might be too tight.
