A rustic one pot roast chicken with whole cloves of garlic is a super tasty asiago gravy!

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 4 (6 ounce) bone-in, skin on chicken thighs
  • 20 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped (or 1 teaspoon dry thyme)
  • salt and pepper to taste
    1 onion, diced
    2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 cup asiago cheese (or parmesan), grated
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cups chicken broth

Directions
  1. Heat the oil in a large sauce pan over medium-high heat, add the chicken (seasoned with salt and pepper) and brown, abut 3-5 minutes per side, before setting aside.
  2. Add the onion and garlic and saute until the onions are tender and the everything is lightly browned, about 3-5 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle in the thyme and flour and cook for a minute.
  4. Add the broth and deglaze the pan by scraping the brown bits off of the bottom of the pan with a spoon while the broth is sizzling when added.
  5. Mix the asiago into the sauce and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Add the chicken, cover (with a lid or foil) and roast in a preheated 400F/200C oven for 15 minutes OR turn the heat down to medium-low and simmer on the stove top for 15 minutes.

Slow Cooker: Optionally (but recommended) implement steps 1-5, place everything in the slow cooker and cook on low for 4-10 hours or high for 2-4 hours. If you skip the earlier steps, whisk the flour into the broth before mixing in the slow cooker.
Option: Start by cooking 4 strips of bacon, set aside and cook the onion in the bacon grease and add the crumbled bacon to the sauce after roasting!
Option: For One-Pan: Make this a one-pan meal by adding 8 ounces of pasta and 2 1/4 cups broth or water (or 1 cup of rice and 2 cups broth or water) to the sauce in step 8 and simmer, covered, until cooked, about 12 minutes (or 20 minutes for rice).

Option: For One-Pan: Make this a one-pan meal by adding 8 ounces of pasta and 2 1/4 cups broth or water (or 1 cup of rice and 2 cups broth or water) to the sauce in step 5 and roast, covered, until cooked, about 15 minutes (or 25 minutes for rice).
Option: Add 1 tablespoons white miso paste to the sauce! (Do it if you have it!)
Option: Add a splash of lemon juice to the sauce!
Option: Add 1/2 cup cream to the sauce!
Option: Add 1/2 pound sliced mushrooms along with the onions!
Option: Add diced potatoes and carrots to the pan before placing the chicken on top and roasting until the veggies are tender, about 20-30 minutes for a one pot meal!
