40 Clove Chicken

40 garlic cloves peeled
4 celery stalks sliced
3-4 lbs bone in chicken pieces without skin (bones help it to not dry out)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 Tblsp olive oil
1/4 c chicken broth or marsala wine
3 Tblsp lemon juice
2 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
pinch crushed red pepper flakes
parsley for garnish

spray 5qt slow cooker with non-stick spray, or use crock pot liner
place garlic and celery in pot
sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper
in large skillet, brown chicken in oil in batches (this is more for looks, if you don't brown it comes out looking very white)
transfer to pot
in small bowl, combine rest of ingredients
pour over chicken
cover and cook on low 3 1/2 - 4 hours or until juices run clear
I add an extra 30 minutes to an hour if I don't brown first

Until Next Time.....
