Now, it may seem like there's a lot of garlic in this Slow Cooker Garlic Rosemary Chicken.
And there is.However, the garlic cooks down, and the cloves mellow until they reach a rich, soft, almost buttery consistency.
I suggest serving the extra cloves spread on some warm, crusty bread.
Also, peeling 40 cloves of garlic takes a while! Save yourself some time, and pick up a bag of pre-peeled garlic cloves.
Costco and Sam's Club carry them for about $4.50 for a large bag, and if you use a lot of garlic, it's worth it.
