Recipe of the week - 40 clove garlic chicken

Remind me, sometime, to tell you the story of the vegetarian sloppy joes and about how I didn't know what a clove of garlic was defined as.

I know now.

This is a quick and easy recipe for the crockpot. Very flavorful.

Here are the ingredients:
  • 3-4 lbs of chicken (best in drumstick form, in my opinion)
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 20-40 cloves (not bulbs) of garlic

Very simple. You slice the onion and you dump it into the base of the crockpot.

Now...the recipe in my book says to mix all this together, roll the chicken in it and then dump the excess into the crockpot, over the chicken. I find that, with the exception of the garlic, there just isn't enough of the other ingredients. So...instead, I put the chicken on top of the onions, and then add the other ingredients separately, directly on top of the chicken. I'm just eyeballing it, here. Seems to work, fine.

Verdict to be added after I eat it on Monday, night. If this publishes without a verdict...it's because I am writing it as I prepare the crockpot on Sunday night. I must have forgotten to update.


UPDATE: See...I knew that would happen.

Verdict...not bad. Lots of flavor. But, I am glad I added the extra seasoning. Otherwise...it would have tasted like little more than chicken. Quick, easy, and lots of leftovers.

So, it's no secret on this page that I am rapidly pro-life.  I don't beat around the bush on this topic.  But, what you may not know...
