Keep the vampires away with this Halloween dinner

A few years ago, I found the perfect recipe for a Halloween night main course. Not only does it invokes the spooky folklore of vampires, it’s a crockpot recipe. Halloween tends to be a very busy day, with last-minute costume issues or (in our family), last-minute costumes.

Imagine making this for dinner, then flinging open your front door to trick-or-treaters:

Joel the Lion ~ Halloween 2010

Slow-Cooker 20 to 40 Clove Garlic Chicken

3-4 pounds chicken (I used drumsticks)
1 large onion, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon pepper
20-40 garlic cloves, peeled, but intact

Place onion slices on the bottom of the stoneware insert. In a large mixing bowl, toss chicken parts with olive oil, salt, paprika, pepper, and all of the garlic cloves. Pour into slow cooker, on top of the onion.

Do not add water.

Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 4-6.

I served it with black beans and rice. It would be great with sliced avocado and sour cream as well.
