|Garlic Lovers' Crock Pot Chicken|
"I could eat this every night," said My Oldest.
It was a very quiet dinner which is usual at our house. But the reason for the lack of conversation was that our mouths were constantly full.
"I am eating too fast, but that is because it is so good," I finally blurted out.
"The garlic is my favorite part. Let's just make a whole crock pot full of garlic next time," commented The Husband.

After the ease of making a scrumptious dinner tonight, my crock pot will be a fixture on my kitchen counter for some time to come.
Garlic Lovers' Crock Pot Chicken
serves about 5
1 whole chicken, about 6 - 7 pounds
1 onion, sliced
30 cloves of garlic, peeled
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoons pepper
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 cup white wine
1/4 cup flour dissolved in 1/2 cup chicken stock
Place chicken, onion, and garlic in crock pot. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle salt, pepper, and thyme over the chicken. Add wine and chicken stock mixture to the crock pot. Cook on low for about 6 hours. The internal temperature of the chicken should register about 165 degrees when it is done.
I kept the chicken in the crock pot about another hour on warm after it was finished cooking. Remove chicken and garlic from the crock pot and serve.
