This slow-cooker chicken recipe has onl y5 ingredients, plus salt and pepper, and gets its great flavor from the long simmering time of the chicken thighs, garlic, carrots and white wine.
2 cups diagonally sliced carrot (about 8 ounces)
8 chicken thighs (about 2 pounds), skinned
12 garlic cloves, peeled
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
How to Make It
Combine carrot, chicken, and garlic in an electric slow cooker, and add wine. Sprinkle with thyme, salt, and black pepper. Cover with lid; cook on low-heat setting for 8 hours.
Remove carrot, chicken, and garlic with a slotted spoon, reserving cooking liquid. Place 1/3 cup carrot, 3 garlic cloves, and 2 chicken thighs in each of 4 shallow bowls. Spoon 2 tablespoons of reserved cooking liquid over each serving.
I have no trouble with an overpowering garlic taste. I don't know what I do differently. I just follow the recipe and cook in my slow cooker. This is one of my go to recipes and I use it for entertaining as well. I only get raves. My only complaint is that the chicken gets a little dry if I leave it in the cooker too long. I also double the carrots.
