Crock Pot 40 Clove Chicken

I love my crock pot!! Slow cooking something yummy while you are living your life is awesome!!! Especially if you are a busy mom! As I have mentioned on past posts I am on a tight budget so chicken is a staple in my house. It is inexpensive and there is so many different ways to prepare it. This has become one of my favorites to have. The garlic kinda gives the chicken a nutty flavor that is awesome!!! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!!

Crock Pot 40 Clove Chicken

4-5 lbs chicken (I used leg quarters that I had separated but you can use any cut as long as it is on the bone)
1 large onion cut into rings
40 cloves garlic peeled, whole and in tact (4 bulbs)
1 Tbs. sea salt
2 Tbs. olive oil
1 Tbs. paprika
2 tsp. black pepper
*optional for a little heat 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

Place onion rings in the bottom of the slow cooker making a little bed for the chicken.
In a large bowl toss the chicken with the oil, salt, paprika, pepper, garlic cloves and the cayenne if you opted to add it.
Pour into the crock pot on top of the onion. 

Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours (high 4-5 hrs.)depending on how quickly your crock pot cooks.
The slower this cooks the more the chicken sucks up the garlic flavor right into the meat when it comes to bone in chicken.
Serve with your favorite sides and enjoy!!!!
