'G' is for Garlic

... as in roasted "40 garlic" chicken!

(makes 6 - 8 servings)
  • 40 cloves of garlic, whole
  • 3 - 4 lbs. of chicken (any part)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tbs. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp salt

1.) Chop onions and place in bottom of crock pot.

2.) Peel garlic (yes, all 40 cloves!) without crushing cloves too much.

3.) In a large bowl, mix together chicken, olive oil, garlic, paprika, salt and pepper.

4.) Pour chicken mixture on top of onions in crock pot and cook on low 6 - 8 hours, or high for 4 - 6 hours.

5.) ENJOY!

If you love garlic, this recipe is for you! It was really good! I know I used chicken legs (instead of the ever-healthy-constantly-raved-about chicken breast, but I tried this recipe with skinless/boneless breasts before and the chicken came out extremely dry and crumbly. I used chicken drumsticks with the skin ON and it made such a big difference! Chicken came out super moist and falling off the bone! The only negative... I think I cooked it too long because the bones were so brittle, they broke apart if you tried to eat the drumstick with your hands. No biggie.

Will try this recipe again with chicken breast but maybe add a cup of chicken broth to keep things moist.
