40 Clove Garlic Chicken

October 16, 2013

This may seem like I’m trying to teach you how to evade a vampire (or zombie) attack, but I promise this is not such a scary meal as you might expect from 40 cloves of garlic. It is fun slow cooker recipe that is great for the fall.

You will need:

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 40 cloves garlic, peeled (about 3 bulbs)
  • 2 lb chicken breast, cut into large chunks
  • 2 t paprika
  • 1 t oregano
  • 1/2 t ground mustard powder
  • 1/2 t ground thyme
  • 2 t salt
  • 2 pepper
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 c chicken stock
  • 3 T butter
  • 3 T flour

Then you will…

  1. Place the onion in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  2. Add the garlic, chicken, paprika, oregano, mustard powder, thyme, salt and pepper. Stir to mix well.
  3. Add the stock.
  4. Cover and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours.
  5. Remove the chicken and garlic cloves. Shred the chicken.
  6. In a large non-stick skillet, melt the butter over medium low heat. When just starting to bubble, whisk in the flour and allow to cook for about 30 seconds.
  7. Gradually whisk in the remaining broth from the slow cooker.
  8. Allow to come to a low boil and thicken to make a pan gravy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Combine the chicken with the gravy and serve over rice or pasta.
