Why I Love This Recipe

Backstory

This recipe is from Cooking Light, although I have modified it a bit. This is one of my favorite "company" meals because it is so good, and the ingredients are such a surprise.


Ingredients You'll Need

5 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
4 tablespoons all purpose flour
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
8 chicken thighs (3 pounds)
½ cup pitted prunes (about 3 ¼ ounces)
¼ cup pimento-stuffed green olives, sliced
2 tablespoons minced fresh or 2 teaspoons dried thyme
Sauce:
1 bay leaf
1 cup orange juice
1 cup Rioja or other red wine
2 tablespoons honey


Directions

Place garlic slices in the bottom of crock pot. Combine flour, salt & pepper in a shallow dish. Dredge chicken in flour mixture. Lay the chicken over garlic.


Spread prunes, olives and thyme on top of chicken.


Combine all ingredients for the sauce (Note: you can use chicken broth in place of the wine). Pour over chicken.


Cover, cook on high for 1 hour, reduce heat to low, cook 7 hours.
