30 Clove Crock Pot Chicken

Recipe from A Year of Slow Cooking

This is a recipe that's been floating around the blog world a lot in the past year.  They all have their own little twist, but they all involve chicken and tons of garlic!

It was funny as I was sitting there peeling 30-something cloves of garlic - J kept walking by giving my strange looks, and asking if that was all for dinner that night.  :)  Yep - it was!

We both thought this was good.  Honestly - the garlic was not overpowering at all.  It was definitely there - but not at all what you would expect. :)  But - if you make this dish - you should definitely like the taste of garlic.

By the way - anyone know a quick, easy way to peel garlic but keep it intact?  Typically I just smash it and the skin comes right off - but that's obviously not keeping it intact. :p

4 lbs bone-in chicken (I used thighs and drumsticks and removed the skin)
1 large onion, sliced
1 T olive oil
2 t kosher salt
2 t paprika
1 t pepper
20-40 cloves garlic (I used about 30), peeled but kept intact

Place the onion in the bottom of the slow cooker.

Toss the chicken pieces with remaining ingredients in a large bowl, then place in the slow cooker.  Cover and cook on High 4-6 hours, or Low 6-8 hours.

You do not need to add any liquid - the chicken will generate enough that it won't burn.



My 20-40 garlic clove chicken in the crockpot recipe specifically says to not bother trying to remove all the skins from the garlic -- most dissolve into the broth and the others you can just scoop out. :) I just remove the loose skins and toss 'em in!


ive seen on food network if you put garlic gloves into a bowl, cover with another bowl and shake, the skins should come right off.

I know this is way late.. but.. there is now a silicone tube you can buy for garlic peeling.. I bought the MIL one a few years ago for when she makes mass amounts of garlic bread for family gatherings.. Bought it at Crate and Barrel for like $10
