I’m already sad about this Crock Pot 40 Clove Garlic Chicken. I’m sad because it’s gone and I want to eat more of it, and I’m sad because I’m afraid that the name is going to scare some folks off. Yes, this dish has 40 garlic cloves in it. If you don’t like garlic, you won’t like this chicken. But if you love garlic, or even just like in a “garlic’s okay” sort of way, you need to make this recipe.

Here’s what you’ll need:
3-4 pounds of chicken (I used a large pack of legs. You could use any cut you like)
1 large onion, sliced
1 Tbs. olive oil
2 tsps. Paprika
2 tsps. kosher salt
1 tsp. pepper
20-40 garlic cloved, peeled but left whole (I used 1 bulb of garlic)

How to make it:
Toss the onions in the bottom of the crockpot. In a large bowl, mix the chicken with the other ingredients. I used my hands to mix it all up. Put the chicken in the crockpot on top of the onions. Cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 7-8 hours.
Because of the paprika, the chicken turns out an appetizing color, something I find unusual in crockpot cooking. Still, chicken legs are not very photogenic. (Neither are my own legs though, so I shouldn’t point fingers. Okay, that’s enough appendage talk.) I served the garlic and onions over angel hair pasta and it was perfectly yum. The garlic would also be good smeared on hot bread.
