slow cooked garlic chicken (celiac and diabetic)

September 3, 2007

ingredients ::

1 whole roasting chicken (4-6 lbs) or 4-5 chicken breast halves with bone and skin

2 medium onions peeled and halved (i like white or yellow onion for this recipe)

3 -6 cloves of garlic chopped or pressed (depending on how strong a garlic flavor you want)

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp sage

1 tsp thyme

1 tbsp parsley

salt & medium grind black pepper to taste

directions ::

for preparing a whole roasting chicken :: remove giblets and neck; rinse and pat dry. sprinkle the inside of the cavity with salt and pepper and about 1/3 of your herbs and garlic. stuff cavity with onion halves and drizzle about 1/3 of your olive oil over the onions in the cavity. place chicken breast up in your crock pot and rub with remainder of oil and sprinkle on the remaining salt and pepper, garlic and herbs. cook on low all day (about 8 hours). let sit for 10 minutes before carving. serve with onions.

for preparing chicken breasts :: first of all, i cannot stress enough the necessity of using chicken with bones and skin. these can be discarded before serving but they are essential for cooking a flavorful chicken with this recipe. stack the onions in the center of your crock pot and drizzle about 1/3 of your oil over them. sprinkle with salt and pepper. arrange chicken around the edge of your crock pot, skin side up. sprinkle the rest of your salt, pepper, herbs, and garlic on top of chicken and cook on low for 6-7 hours. serve with onions.

for both methods :: reserve remaining juice in the bottom of your crock pot. turn crock pot on high and stir in flour 1 tsp at a time while your chicken is resting to make a savory gravy. alternately, you can just save the broth aside and freeze it for soup stock [or refrigerate up to 3 days].

    the *type here* thing in the comment box is just part of the theme, so I can’t really take credit.
