This Slow Cooker Middle Eastern Garlic Chicken is marinated for amazing flavor, and then it cooks in the slow cooker to keep the kitchen cool!
For Friday Favorites we spotlight past recipes that you may have missed, and this Slow Cooker Middle Eastern Garlic Chicken from The Perfect Pantry sounds like a recipe I would love! I’m definitely a big fan of all types of Middle Eastern food, and I think this garlic chicken sounds like a wonderful dinner any time of year. I love all the middle eastern flavors in this dish, and marinating the chicken before it goes into the slow cooker makes this extra flavorful. And if you serve with low-carb pita bread, this can be a tasty low-carb meal!
I’d especially like this recipe when it’s hot outside and you can cook in the CrockPot without heating up the house and then serve the food with cooling additions like lettuce, tomatoes, pita bread, and Ranch Dressing. Those recipes where the slow cooker cooks the hot part of the dish and then it’s combined with cooling ingredients are what I call a Summer Dinner! And I’d love using the slow cooker to make this on a hot summer day.
