Crockpot Version of 40 Clove Garlic Chicken
My first blog entry was for this chicken recipe. I came back to add the above picture because the first time we made it I didn't take a photo. This recipe is one we have now enjoyed a few times. It is great with some bread to smooth the garlic onto. Both Dave and I love garlic, so we enjoy the smells as this cooks all afternoon.
I used this recipe I found on The Novie Chef:
Crockpot Version of 40 clove chicken
You will need:
2 pounds chicken parts (I used 2 pounds of boneless/skinless chicken breasts)
1 large yellow onion
1 tablespoon olive oil (I used 2 tablespoons)
2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon pepper
40 cloves of garlic (I used two bulbs which yielded about 30something cloves)
Place onion slices on the bottom of the stoneware insert. In a large mixing bowl, toss chicken parts with olive oil, salt, paprika, pepper, and all of the garlic cloves. Pour into crock pot on top of the onion (do not add water). Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 4-6.
I cooked the chicken on low for 6 hours and it came our perfect. For only two pounds, I would not recommend cooking it any longer. The garlic spread nicely onto bread. We also prepared a side of spaghetti squash and mixed some of the roasted garlic into it.
