Slow-Cooker Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic

slow cooker chicken

Easy, simmered slow-cooker chicken is perfect for a back-porch meal—and this slow-cooker chicken with 40 cloves of garlic is especially delectable. To insure optimal flavor and a tender entree, opt for bone-in thighs instead of white meat which can dry out when cooked for long periods. Make prep easier with pre-peeled organic garlic, and pretty-up the platter with lemon slices and sprigs of thyme or rosemary.

Ingredients
Cooking spray
1 cup unsalted chicken stock
1/4 cup dry white wine
3 T all-purpose gluten-free flour
2 T olive oil
2 T fresh lemon juice, divided
6 skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1 3/4 tsp kosher salt, divided
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper, divided
1 1/2 pounds small red potatoes, scrubbed
40 garlic cloves, peeled
12 fresh thyme sprigs
3 T chopped, fresh parsley

Preparation
Coat bottom and sides of a 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.

Combine stock, wine, flour, butter, and 1 tablespoon lemon juice in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Pour mixture into slow cooker. Sprinkle chicken thighs evenly with 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Place thighs in slow cooker, skin side down. Arrange potatoes, garlic, and thyme over chicken in slow cooker. Sprinkle ½ teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper evenly over garlic and potatoes. Cover slow cooker; cook on LOW for 8 hours.

Transfer chicken to a platter. Transfer potatoes and garlic to platter with a slotted spoon; discard thyme sprigs. Sprinkle chicken and potatoes evenly with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, remaining 1 tablespoon lemon juice, and parsley. Strain cooking liquid from slow cooker through a sieve into a liquid measuring cup; let stand 3 minutes. Discard any fat that rises to top of liquid. Serve jus with chicken, potatoes, and garlic cloves.
