Yes, yes, I know, the dish should be Chicken with 40 Cloves, but the heads of garlic I had in the house weren’t that great and only yielded 32 good cloves. So, here you have Crock pot Chicken with 32 Cloves (recipe from A Year of Slow Cooking).
I thought this dish was very tasty! The chicken was so tender, perfectly flavored and the big hunks of soft garlic were perfect smeared on crusty bread. Unfortunately, Hubby thought it was a little overpowering for his tastes.
1 Whole roaster chicken, cut up into pieces
1 Large yellow onion
40 Cloves garlic, paper removed
1T. Olive Oil
2t. Pepper (original recipe called for 1t. I like pepper, so I added more)
If using a whole roaster chicken, break it down into smaller, usable pieces – 2 breasts, 2 legs, 2 wings, 2 thighs.
Cut onion into half rounds and add to the bottom of empty crock pot.
In a separate bowl, combine chicken, garlic, spices and oil. Toss to coat and add to crock pot.
Set crock pot to low and let it do its thing. I had mine on the lowest setting for 10 hours, while at work, and kept it on warm for another hour before eating.
Husband Rating – 1 out of 5 – “I didn’t really care for this one.”
