Ok…before you get scared of the amount of garlic let me just say I realize it could be a little intimating. I made a version of this dish about seven years ago when I was trying to impress my hubby (then boyfriend) who absolutely loves garlic. I was a little skeptical of the amount of garlic but gave it a try and I am so glad I did because this is totally on my top three list of favorite dishes.  Trust me when I say that this is one of the most amazing chicken dishes you will ever have.  The sauce is so delicious, the chicken falls apart, and the garlic becomes mellow and  sweet with a soft buttery texture….Mmmm. My hubby raves about it every time and even my picky kids eat it.  So without further a do….here is my easy slow cooker version of this absolutely  delectable dish….Oh and it is easier to buy the packaged already peeled garlic….makes everything easier and quicker to throw together.
