Chicken with 20 Cloves of Garlic

Chicken with 20 Cloves of Garlic - YUM! | The Baking Beauties

I have been wanting to try this recipe for Chicken with 20 Cloves of Garlic (or one similar) for a while already. Since I just bought 3 new bulbs of garlic yesterday, and some chicken breasts (bone in was on sale, so that’s what I used), I figured it was the perfect time to give this recipe a try. Not to mention, it’s a super quick & simple recipe, and your house smells FANTASTIC while cooking it (and will be vampire free too). 😉

The chicken had a great flavour, and the garlic was sweet & roasted, just perfect! I did let the sauce cook down a bit before putting the Parmesan cheese on, to let the sauce thicken up. This is a recipe I will keep close at hand now, because of how easy it is to prepare, and how great the flavour is.

Chicken with 20 Cloves of Garlic

  3. Sprinkle with Parmesan; cover. Remove from heat. Let stand 1 minute.

    Thanks, Betty! You couldn't smell the garlic wafting on the light north-west wind?? :) Actually, since the garlic isn't chopped or minced, the flavour is fairly mild. They were perfectly roasted throughout & sweet. Delicious with the parmesan cheese!

    Sounds delicious! I've tried a version where I've braised a whole cut-up chicken along with garlic and wine, but this sounds even easier!

    Dumb question, but if I double or triple the recipe, should I do that with the garlic as well?

      That’s a good question. I’d still up it, but maybe by half, and not double. 60 cloves of garlic, you might never get the smell out of your house! 😉
