Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken

The days of summer are coming when no one wants to be in a hot kitchen.  Today’s dish is a fix and forget entree with my favorite flavors of lemon and garlic.  Brown the chicken breasts and place in a slow cooker with wine, lemon, and garlic.  Serve with  rice, pasta, or even mashed potatoes.  It’s very versatile.
