  2. Mix the Ingredients: In a small bowl, mix the chicken broth, lemon juice, olive oil, minced garlic, oregano, and thyme.
  3. Cook: Pour the mixture over the chicken in the crockpot. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. The chicken is done when it is thoroughly cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (75°C).
