Mediterranean Roast Turkey!
- 2 cups chopped onion (about 1 large)
- 1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives
- 1/2 cup julienne-cut drained oil-packed sun-dried tomato halves
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon Greek seasoning mix (such as McCormick’s)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 (4-pound) boneless turkey breast, trimmed
- 1/2 cup fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth, divided
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- Thyme sprigs (optional)
Combine first 9 ingredients in an electric slow cooker. Add 1/4 cup chicken broth. Cover and cook on low for 7 hours.
Combine remaining 1/4 cup broth and flour in a small bowl; stir with a whisk until smooth. Add broth mixture to slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 30 minutes. Cut turkey into slices.
The garlic becomes creamy and mellows as it cooks. Spread it on chunks of crusty French baguette and soak up the fabulous sauce as you enjoy every morsel of this super-tender chicken. If you’re tight on time, substitute 3 pounds of chicken pieces rather than cut up the wholechicken. Also, look for garlic cloves that are already peeled.
- Yield: 5 servings (serving size: 4 ounces chicken, about 3 tablespoons sauce, and about 8 garlic cloves)
- 1/2 cup fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
- 1 (3 1/3-pound) whole chicken, skinned and cut into 8 pieces
- 1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 1/2 teaspoons butter (skip if you like)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 40 garlic cloves, peeled (about 4 whole heads)
- 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
- 4 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley (optional)
1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a small bowl.
2. Discard giblets and neck from chicken. Rinse chicken and pat dry. Heat oil and butter in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until butter melts. Sprinkle chicken pieces evenly with salt and pepper. Add chicken pieces to pan; cook 2 1/2 minutes on each side or until golden. Remove chicken from pan; place in a 4-quart electric slow cooker.
3. Reduce heat to medium. Add garlic to drippings in pan; sauté 1 minute or until garlic begins to brown. Stir in broth mixture, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Boil 2 minutes or until sauce is reduced to about 1 cup. Pour sauce over chicken; sprinkle with thyme. Cover and cook on LOW for 4 hours or until chicken is done. Serve sauce and garlic with chicken. Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired.

Blue Cheese Dip
30 carrot sticks
30 celery sticks

3. Combine hot sauce and next 3 ingredients (through garlic) in an oval 4-quart electric slow cooker coated with cooking spray.
