Gently simmered in a slow cooker with 40 cloves of garlic, this fall-apart chicken recipe serves as an easy dinner – special enough for Thanksgiving.

Ingredients

1/2
cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
3
tablespoons dry white wine
2
tablespoons cognac
1 1/2
teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2
teaspoons butter
1
whole chicken (3 to 3 1/2 lb), skin removed, cut into 8 pieces
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon freshly ground pepper
40
cloves garlic (about 4 whole heads), peeled
2
teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
4
teaspoons chopped fresh parsley, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Spray 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. In small bowl, stir broth, wine and cognac; set aside.
  • 2 In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil and butter over medium-high heat. Sprinkle chicken pieces evenly with salt and pepper. Add to skillet; cook 5 minutes, turning once, until golden. Place chicken in slow cooker.
  • 3 Add garlic to drippings in skillet; cook over medium heat 1 minute, stirring constantly, until garlic begins to brown. Stir in broth mixture, scraping skillet to loosen brown particles. Boil 2 minutes or until sauce is reduced to about 1 cup. Pour sauce over chicken. Sprinkle with thyme.
