Slow Cooker Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic

Okay, I seriously wasn't going to post another recipe today. I decided that I was done and should probably concentrate on getting other things accomplished - like lunch or maybe some actual work.

But, instead, my eyes came across this recipe, my jaw dropped, I started drooling, and the rest is history.

I adore garlic. I put it in almost every meal that I make and have been known to make a meal simply because I wanted garlic and needed a meal that would provide sustenance for my craving.

So, if you're a garlic fiend like me, this recipe is for you!

Slow Cooker Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic

2 sprigs fresh thyme
2 sprigs fresh rosemary
2 sprigs fresh sage
2 springs fresh Italian parsley
40 cloves garlic, unpeeled
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
4 lb whole chicken
2 stalks celery, sliced
1 loaf French bread,sliced


1. Place 1 sprig thyme, rosemary, sage and parsley in chicken cavity. Place celery in stoneware. Put chicken on top of celery. Add garlic around chicken. Chop remaining herbs sprinkle herbs, salt and pepper over chicken.

2. Cover cook on Low 8 - 10 hours or on High 4 - 6 hours. To serve, place chicken, garlic and celery on serving platter. Squeeze roasted garlic out of skins onto toasted French bread slices and spread with knife.

Sigh. My garlic loving heart is content! :LOVE:

Actually 40 cloves of garlic is not too much its a french dish and when you slow cook garlic without mincing (IE whole) the garlic tastes sweet quite alot different to minced garlic, its a great dish try it!!

I LOVE GARLIC! This sounds great, and really easy, since it's done in the slow cooker or crock pot. I'm definitley going to try this!

I will say this for this dish - if you love roasted garlic, you will LOVE this dish. My husband loves garlic, but he wasn't a fan. And I learned something new - I don't like roasted garlic either. I want it either raw or minced! And lots of it...

The Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten, does something similar too. Oh this is making me hungry. Looks like it would be easy and oh how I love garlic.

I saw something similar on Alton Brown's garlic episode and it looked great.

I LOVE garlic. I would love to try this, but don't think my new apartment neighbors would appreciate the smell.

I haven't tried it, but I gotta tell you, to me, 40 cloves sounds great! I really and truly love garlic. I'm sure that it ends up with a pungent flavor, but if you knew that going in...? I don't have any fresh garlic at home, but once I do, I'm doing this!!! And then I'll let you know what I think...:)
