Twenty-Garlic Chicken Dinner

I know this sounds like a lot of garlic, but the garlic flavor dissipates during long cooking. After it's finished cooking, you can squeeze the garlic onto bread or use in mashed potatoes. Found this in a crock pot cook booklet.


  1. Mix salt, paprika, pepper and oil in a small bowl, to form a paste: spread evenly over each piece of chicken.
  2. In a 5-6 quart crock pot, place onion slices. Arrange chicken on top of onions. Separate garlic into cloves.**DO NOT PEEL** Place garlic cloves around and in between chicken pieces.
  3. Cover; cook on Low setting for 7-8 hours.
  4. With slotted spoon, remove chicken, onion and garlic from crock pot; place on serving platter.
  5. Serve with mashed potatoes or rice or your favorite side dish.
