    Chef1MOM-Connie's Note:

    This is an adoption from the Garlic Lover's Cookbook (Cookbook Swap 2007) and a request to post. I made this for my family and the whole house smelled aromatic and comforting. It was a big hit at our house, hope it is at yours.

      Wonderful! I blanched the garlic in salted water for 10 minutes and that was spot on to leave it tender after cooking without losing too much of the garlic punch. I served along with mashed potato and a side of steamed vegies, it really would go well with anything that soaks up the great sauce like the suggested crusty bread. I used a good dry white wine, it does contribute quite a bit to the flavor so worth using something decent.

      This makes a lovely meal. DH really enjoyed it. I used 2 large HEADS of garlic that I blanched by peeling and dropping into the hot broth that I heated in the microwave in a glass measuring cup. Cooked again for 1 minute in the micro then added the wine and poured into the oven proof skillet that I browned the chicken in. I also sliced the really large cloves of garlic in half. I put the skillet in the oven rather than transfer to a roasting pan. Fewer dishes! Yeah! My chicken was done a lot sooner than the 40-50 minutes required so I would recommend checking them at about 20 minutes, especially if the chicken breast is small or thin. I was not sure as to the size or weight of the chicken as it isnt listed here. I served this with garlic potatoes as recommended. I think next time I will serve this with some type of pasta such as egg noodles or maybe some linguine. Thanks for a great recipe that really comes together fast and since it cooks in the oven, gives you time to spend with friends and family. I can really see this as a great recipe for a dinner party. I served this with a Yalumba Viogner and it went together very well. Made for Bev Tag! Thanks 1Mom!

      This is so delicious and easy to make. The recipe reduces to 2 servings nicely. For the 2 of us, I used almost a full head of garlic and discovered that I didn't have the spices called for and used a spice blend. The chicken was moist, tender and full of flavor.
