This easy crock pot chicken with garlic and onion is a dinner go-to recipe of mine. We like to have ours with Amish style mashed potatoes or rice, and a little Chick-fil-A sauce on the side is a must! This crock pot chicken makes a flavorful broth for gravy if you are planning to serve it with mashed potatoes or rice. For some flavor variations see below the recipe.

Cook time: 4–5 hrs.
⦁ 4-5 chicken thighs (bone in) or leg and thighs
⦁ 2 cups water

1 Place chicken in the crock pot and add water (Note* if you do not wish to make gravy with the broth you can add 1 cup of water instead of 2 cups). Season with the seasonings (to taste) then toss in the garlic slices and onion.
2 Cook on high for 4 1/2-5 hours until a meat thermometer inserted in the center of the chicken thighs reads 165. Cooking times may vary depending on your crock pot size and strength . *See notes below.
Chicken, onion, garlic and seasoning. This time I forgot to add the seasoning before the veggies… oops!
For flavor variations you can try Cajun seasoning and old bay, lemon pepper seasoning and Season all, or any of your favorite seasoning combinations for chicken will work.
If you are not a fan of garlic it can be omitted in this recipe as its sole purpose is to add a garlic flavor.
