Slow Cooker Garlic Chicken

  • Cooking Time:

    4 hours on High
  • Servings:



1/2 c. chicken broth, fat-free, low-sodium
3 T. dry white wine
2 T. cognac
3 1/3 lb. chicken, whole, skinned and cut into 8 pieces
1 1/2 tsp. olive oil, extra-virgin
1 1/2 tsp. butter
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper, freshly ground

After reading about how good garlic is for you, I knew Slow Cooker Garlic Chicken would be a great recipe to make for my family. ENJOY!

  1. Combine broth, white wine and cognac in a small bowl.
  2. Discard giblets and neck from chicken. Rinse chicken and pat dry.
  3. In a large non-stick skillet heat oil and butter over medium-high heat until butter melts.
  4. Sprinkle chicken pieces evenly with salt and pepper.
  5. Add chicken to skillet; brown for 2 1/2 minutes on each side or until golden.
  6. Transfer to a 4 quart slow cooker.
  7. Reduce heat in skillet to medium, adding garlic to drippings; sauté for 1 minute or until garlic begins to brown.
  8. Stir in broth mixture from step #1, scraping pan to loosen browned bits.
  9. Boil for approximately 2 minutes or until sauce is reduced to about 1 cup.
  10. Pour sauce over chicken; sprinkle with thyme.
  11. Cover. Cook on Low for 4 hours or until chicken is done.
  12. Serve sauce and garlic with chicken.

NOTE: If desired, garnish with chopped parsley… also delicious with stir fried veggies!

I don’t cook enough “exotic” stuff, nor do I drink, to have white wine or cognac on hand for something like this. Are these mainly for flavor or to add liquid or both? Could I use something else? If I have wine on hand, it’s a dessert wine (Moscato d’asti)… What would you recommend? This is the first I’ve been on your site and have pinned a BUNCH of new recipes to try. Thank you for putting these out there for us inexperienced crockers!
