Slow Cooker Garlic Chicken

My new favorite way to prepare a meal on Sundays is using my slow cooker a.k.a CROCK POT!! I don't do it every Sunday but for sure it makes the day so much easier!! Who doesn't love crock pot cooking?!?!  Okay well I am sure there are many that don't but I sure do!! So here is a new recipe I found that sounded wonderful. Love garlic, love chicken, love the crock pot.  

Slow-Cooker Garlic Chicken


Ingredients...
3 1/2 to 4 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast
salt and pepper to taste
1 medium yellow onion, halved and sliced thin
6 garlic cloves, halved
2 teaspoons dried thyme
1 cup dry white wine
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
chopped fresh parsley for garnish 

Directions...
1.  Season chicken with salt and pepper. 
2.  Combine onion, garlic, and thyme in a 5 to 6 quart slow cooker and season with salt and pepper.  Top with chicken
3. In a small bowl, whisk together wine and flour until smooth & add to slow cooker.  
4. Cover and cook on high until chicken is tender about 3 1/2 hours or low for 7 hours.  
5. Serve chicken with sauce and garnish with fresh parsley (obviously took picture before garnishing!)

I served this dish with whole wheat penne pasta, roasted root medley, and steamed green beans.  It was a hit with the entire family!!
