Garlic Chicken with More Garlic in the Crockpot


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)


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.
