Twenty-Garlic Chicken Dinner

READY IN: 7hrs 15mins
Recipe by L. Duch

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.

I made this in an electric roaster at 250 degree,cooking three hours. I decided to make it to late in the day to use the crockpot. I used skinless chicken breast and thighs.Moist tasty recipe.Loved the creamy garlic. Served chicken with red fried tomatoes and italian bread. Great recipe! Thanks
