I love this yummy dish!! It is full of flavors…

The garlic, the wine and the simple mix of spices all amazingly works together in this dish…

Chicken and garlic in one meal! Yes, it does not get any better than this delicious one pot wonder….And it does not require any hard work, much preparations, special ingredients or equipment’s to cook this amazing and full of flavors kind of meal…

Sometimes cooking a healthy, delicious and easy dinner on a week night could be challenging and hard to achieve! Especially for busy moms and dads out there, when your busy at work all day, out and about shopping or picking up the kids from school or their activities…This is the perfect make ahead meal to cook for these kind of days…

It takes ten minutes to prepare and just let the slow cooker do the rest for you, yes it is one of the easiest and elegant one pot meal you will ever cook for dinner or lunch for your family and friends.

I love garlic and chicken combinations no matter how the chicken is prepared, shawarma, grilled, baked or boiled… garlic is the best companion to chicken in my opinion and this dish is the proof.

The garlic in this amazing dish loses its pungent harsh flavor and become sweet, velvety and creamy, so don’t let the garlic stops you from making this dish for your special date nights…

5 lb. skinless, boneless chicken breast cut in half each

1/2 tbsp. dry thyme

1 tbsp. sea salt

1 tbsp. black pepper

40 cloves garlic

1/4 cup flour

5 tbsp. olive oil

2 cups alcohol free white wine

1 lemon cut to wedges

In a small bowl mix flour, black pepper, salt and thyme.

Add chicken into a clean slow cooker insert and with clean hands rub with flour and spice mixture.

Add olive oil, white wine and lemon wedges.

Mix well, cover and cook on high for three hours.

Even though it was just me and the Mr. for dinner I served this delicious meal family style in a cast iron pot, it made the chicken dish shine and looked elegant on the table.

I served this delicious dish as is without any side dishes, just a crusty french bread to soak up the delicious broth, but it could be served with Salad or rice pilaf to complete the meal.

Enjoy!!
