Garlic Crock Pot Chicken

I love whole chickens but never seem to have any luck with them. I always seem to overcook or under-cook them. I came across this version and when I saw that all I had to do was stick it in my crock pot, I was hooked. I LOVE garlic, and I LOVE chicken, so it was a win win. It came out tender, moist, and full of flavor. My family ate it all up and no one complained! I definitely recommend trying this recipe out if you love garlic and chicken, and super fast throw it together meals!!


1 whole chicken, 5-6 lbs
1 onion, sliced
30 garlic cloves, peeled (yes, I know, that’s a lot, but trust me, its yummy)
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 cup white wine
1/4 cup flour dissolved in 1/2 cup chicken broth


Place chicken, onion, and garlic in crock pot. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and thyme over the chicken. Add wine and chicken broth mixture to crock pot. Cook on low about 6 hours. Internal temp of chicken should reach 165 when done. Remove chicken and garlic from crock pot and serve. Scoop some of the gravy out on pour on top for additional flavor.

I made this yesterday using chicken breasts instead of a whole chicken (3 lbs). This is by far the best chicken that I have made in the crock pot. Thanks for providing such an awesome and easy recipe! I’m going to use the leftover chicken to make pesto stuffed chicken shells! Keep up the great work!
