Week 33 - Garlicky Parmesan Chicken

The Recipe
(Serves 3)
800g chicken (dark meat is best, but white will do too)
Salt, pepper
800g small potatoes, washed and halved if necessary (the should all be approx. the same size)
2 tbsp butter
5 cloves garlic, chopped
Fresh thyme
2-3 tbsp grated Parmesan, plus more for serving
Olive oil

Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a pan and sear the chicken ~3 minutes per side.

Meanwhile, in a crockpot, toss potatoes with more olive oil, butter, garlic, thyme, parmesan and more salt and pepper. Add the chicken and cook on low for 6-8 hours until the chicken is fully cooked.

Serve with a nice salad (I made a carrot/apple salad) and more parmesan.

The Verdict
Really good! I cooked mine for 7 hours, and the dark meat at least turned out very well. I didn't try the light, but think I might wait and add that a bit later, if I were to make this again - and I probably will, I REALLY liked it!

There were too few potatoes though. Will have to try with this amount next time (the original recipe only called for 500g). Otherwise I don't have any suggestions for improvements.
