Ingredients

  • 40

    garlic cloves peeled

  • 2

    tsp olive oil

  • 1/2

    tsp sugar

  • 8

    5 to 7 ounce bone in chicken thighs trimmed or multiple split breasts

  • salt and pepper

  • 2/3

    cup dry sherry

  • 1/2

    cup chicken broth

  • 1

    tbsp lemon juice

  • 1

Directions

1. Combine garlic, 1 tsp oil and sugar in bowl. Cover and microwave until garlic is translucent and yields slightly when squeezed -- about 4 minutes. Stir halfway through cooking. Pour off any liquid and set aside. 2. Pat chicken dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tsp oil in skillet until smoking. Cook chicken skin side down until well browned about 10 minutes. Transfer chicken to plate, skin side up. Pour off all but 2 tbs fat from skillet. 3. Add microwaved garlic to fat in skillet and cook over medium high heat until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Off heat, stir in sherry; return skillet to heat and cook until nearly evaporated, about 4 minutes scraping up any browned bits. Add broth and bring to a boil. 4. Transfer garlic broth mixture to slow cooker. Nestle chicken skin side up on top of garlic cloves. Cover and cook until chicken registers 175 degrees about 3 hours. 5. Transfer chicken to platter. Add lemon juice, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper to sauce. Pour sauce around chicken. Note: Gluten free only if you omit the bread.
