    Sharlene~W's Note:

    Vampires beware! Actually, don't be put off by the large quantity of garlic in this recipe. When the garlic cooks, the flavor mellows out and it isn't overpowering at all (although you and your significant other may want to be sure you both eat dinner together!) Good served with either mashed potatoes or rice.

      I had some garlic heads I wanted to use and this was perfect. I did double the wine and broth because my family likes lots of sauce. I served it over rice. The only problem I had is that i should have doubled the whole recipe because there was not enough for seconds-which they were begging for!

      This is very good. The chicken comes out real tender. I do have indigestion, but that is my own fault for eating that much garlic, which was quite good. I served this with rice and green beans. It didn't take long to cook, and the garlic honestly is not overpowering. I will make this again. Thanks Sharlene~W.

      This has got to be one of the best chicken dishes I've eaten. We had this for dinner tonight, and it was outstanding. Changed the breasts to legs and cooked it longer, then reduced the sauce by about half, and thickened it with only 2 teaspoons of flour. Thanks for a great recipe Sharlene. PS. Rise, you'd love this I think!
