In RHIC and FAIR experiments, it is important to search the position of the critical point and first-order phase boundary in QCD phase diagram. Strong Coupling Lattice QCD has been applied to investigate the chiral phase transition at finite temperature and chemical potential. We take account of the chiral and deconfinement phase transitions in the strong coupling lattice QCD, and investigate the QCD phase diagram. In this study, the calculated critical temperature at zero chemical potential almost reproduces the results of Monte Carlo simulations in the strong coupling region. By comparison, in the finite chemical potential region, Polyakov loop effects reduce the critical point temperature and the first order chiral phase transition line shrinks.
