Season the chicken with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper and place in slow cooker. Add the carrots, onion and garlic cloves. Add about 2 cups of chicken broth and the bay leaf; cover and cook on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours. The chicken should be very tender.
About 30 to 45 minutes before the chicken is done, cut the head of cabbage into wedges. Place the cabbage wedges in a large pot with 1 cup of water. Add two tablespoons of butter and sprinkle generously with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Cover the pan and cook over medium-high heat for 20 to 30 minutes or until the cabbage is tender; drain.
