Garlic and Parmesan. It almost doesn't matter what comes next, does it? It's such a perfect combination that gets even better when you mix those two ingredients with butter and mayonnaise to create a rich cream sauce that's poured over slowly-cooked chicken. Toss in some potatoes and asparagus, and you've got yourself the perfect Sunday night meal.
Making the chicken with the garlic cream sauce (as below) is my favorite way to enjoy this dish. But on days that I want something a bit lighter, I add the garlic in at the beginning and just sprinkle Parmesan cheese on at the end, when I would add the sauce. Still all the flavor, you just lose some of the richness.
Pro tip: To add more texture to your chicken, use seasoned skin-on chicken and sear in a hot pan with olive oil and butter before placing over the potatoes in the slow cooker.
Note: All slow cookers are a little bit different in temperature and calibration. This recipe was tested in Cooktop Cove's Test Kitchen using this slow cooker, which is available for purchase here.
