I'm making this for tonight's dinner (over leftover smashed potatoes and alongside collard greens), and OMG this is amazing. I had to share. (If you click the link, there's a similar recipe, too, that you can use if you have more time.)

Slow Cooker Garlic Chicken

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
40 cloves peeled garlic (you can buy whole, peeled garlic in the produce section)
3/4 cup dry white wine
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 1/2 teaspoons dried rosemary
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon butter

Salt and pepper chicken and add it to the slow cooker.  Add the garlic, wine, and spices and cook on low for 4-6 hours.

When you’re ready to serve, remove the chicken and pour the juices from the pot through a sieve into a bowl, then press the garlic through the sieve to form a paste.  Cook the sauce over medium high heat until it thickens slightly, about 6-8 minutes.  Add 1 tablespoon butter to the sauce.   Serve over the chicken.

Ok.. and how will YOU smell TOMORROW?!  Will people be cringing as you pass them by? How much personal space will you get afterward?

I have seen this recipe in my books before, but never tried it.

I'll have to try this. I've done a whole chicken cooked in a Dutch oven with the same amount of garlic cloves and topped with a mixture of chopped herbs. It's probably my husband favorite chicken recipe.

Sounds like the glorious chicken I had at "The Stinking Rose" in San Francisco many years ago - so yummy!!! Also think my kids palates could handle this now. Thanks for the recipe reminder.....Julie

How old are your kids?

My DD is 3, and she handled this fine, but I cut the garlic a lot.

I have a picky husband and teenage son(14) so I don't try too much stuff. Other son (13) is like me and will try it all!!!
