Tonight we're having Crockpot Garlic Chicken with mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli; this is one of our favorite meals! Click on the link above to get the recipe....I generally use several boneless skinless chicken breasts instead of the bone-in chicken pieces that the original recipe calls for, so I add a cup of white wine or apple juice to the Crockpot because the chicken breasts need more liquid. At the end of cooking, I thicken the liquid in the Crockpot with cornstarch dissolved in a small amount of water or wine, and then scoop out several of the garlic cloves to mash up with the potatoes.
I know it sounds like an insane amount of garlic, but the long, slow cooking process makes the garlic cloves sweet and mild and very soft. It tastes wonderful...not strong at all!
