      I don't really understand Michbb's objection, or whether Michbb even tried this recipe. It's pretty clear by reading this recipe that it's some kind of Middle Eastern-style recipe. I just made it for dinner, and it's great! I would say the closest thing I'm familiar with is the "Farmer's Dish," served by Mediterranean Kitchen in Bellevue, WA. They say they've served a million wings prepared in their traditional Lebanese manner--that's about 250,000 customers, and they can't all be wrong. Just as a point of info, Med Kitchen is also renowned in the Seattle area for serving up one of the most garlicky menus in existence. If you want more garlic in this recipe, just add more... you're the chef. I can only disagree with one thing in this recipe, which is "Discard liquid in pan." No! Reduce it down to about half by boiling; it becomes a thick, rich gravy. Add 1 tsp of sugar to really make it pop, and serve it over your rice. Absolutely wonderful! Five stars, and thanks for posting this. I will be making it again.

      I didn't understand why you call it Garlic Chicken Breasts. I would have to say it was more indian style rather than garlic.
