This was for dinner tonight and it was delish! My only complaint would be that because it cooks in the crock-pot, the chicken doesn't brown up so it didn't look super appetizing, but the flavor is awesome. I think next time I would brown it in it a skillet first, then stick it in the crock-pot. The kids inhaled it and asked for seconds and thirds. I served it over a bed of lettuce that was tossed with lemon juice, salt and pepper, and a side of baked sweet potatoes.
Lemon- Rosemary Chicken
1/2 c. lemon juice
1 lemon, sliced
1 T. olive oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 bunch fresh rosemary (I used about 2 t. dried rosemary)
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
In a large food storage bag, place lemon juice, oil, garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper. Add chicken. Seal bag and marinate in refrigerator 3-4 hours, turning bag occasionally. Place chicken in crock-pot and pour marinade over; top with lemon slices. Cook for 4-6 hours on low, or until tender. You may add frozen broccoli and carrots about an hour before done.

- 1 storebought pizza dough
- 2 T. butter, melted
- 4 T. cinnamon-sugar
- 2 C. whipped cream cheese
- 1 T. heavy cream
- 2 T. lemon juice
- 1 tsp. lemon zest (from 1 lemon)
- 2 C. mixed berries
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Using a rolling pin, roll out the pizza dough to a thickness of about 1/4 inch. Transfer the pizza dough to the lined baking sheet and brush the dough with the melted butter. Sprinkle with 2 T. cinnamon-sugar and bake until golden brown, about 10 to 15 minutes. Cool the pizza crust on a wire rack.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix together the cheese, cream, lemon juice, and zest.
Spread the cheese mixture over the cooled crust. Top with mixed berries and sprinkle with the remaining cinnamon-sugar. Slice like a pizza and serve.
