Garlic Lovers' Chicken
I found this recipe in a Pillsbury Cookbook a long time ago and have made it several times. Now that I have started this WOE I'm glad it happens to be low in carbs also.
1 tbsp. Oil
3 to 3 1\2 lb. cut-up frying chicken (I use 5 breasts)
1\4 tsp. pepper
1\8 tsp. salt
30 garlic cloves, peeled whole (don't let this scare you!)
2 tbsp. tarragon white wine vinegar (I use white wine vinegar)
1\2 c. chicken broth
1 tbsp. chopped tarragon
1 tbsp. butter
1~Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken; sprinkle with salt and pepper and brown all sides.
2~Remove chicken, reduce heat, and add garlic. Cook until light brown, being careful not to burn.
3~Return chicken to skillet and add Vinegar and broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low;cover and cook 30 to 40 mins. or until chicken is done.
4~Remove chicken from skillet; place on a serving platter. Press garlic cloves in skillet with the back of a spoon to mash. With a wire wisk, stir in tarragon and butter;cook 1 min. or until slightly thickened. pour sauce over chicken and enjoy!
I don't think I have ever followed this recipe exactly and it is excellent everytime. The garlic isn't as strong as you would think once it's simmered so long.
