California-Style Chicken

California-Style Chicken created by spatchcock

After a discussion on the boards, I decided to post this recipe. Even non-garlic heads will love it. I serve with a nice crusty bread to sop up the juices and spread the cooked garlic on. This recipe comes from the American Diabetes Assoc., so you know that in addition to having a to die for taste - it's good for you.

    Didn't taste at all like I thought it would, and the garlic cloves turned a sickly shade of green after being cooked. And the chicken didn't even have that much garlic flavor either :/ The cloves themselves tasted good I guess, but the breasts just tasted like boiled chicken.

    We didn't like this. It was surprisingly bland given the ingredients used. Plus, some of the garlic wasn't very well cooked. We won't make it again.

    this was so easy to throw together, yet looked so elegant! i cut the recipe in half since i had 3 large chicken breasts that i cut in half to make 6 pieces. made as written except used a combination of chicken broth, beer and lemon juice since i didn't have any white wine. oh and i used fresh basil and thyme on the chicken since i didn't have any fresh oregano. i also sprinkled the veggies liberally with salt and pepper too. i loved the flavor combination of celery, onion, garlic and fresh parsley. this is a keeper. will make again and again!! served with greek roasted potatoes. next time will try with angel hair pasta and toss in the juices from the pan. thanks again for a fab recipe!!

    This was really good. I used 5 big chicken breasts and cut them in half. It had really good flavor, and we spread the garlic on some French bread. We also had some white rice that we spooned the juice over. Thanks!

    I am afraid that hubbie and I only found this meal okay. I don't know what it was but it was like something was missing. I followed the recipe exactly. Sorry to say that I won't be making it again.
