The whole cloves of garlic turn mild and buttery when they're simmered with chicken in a simple white wine-mustard sauce in this garlic chicken recipe for two. Serve with mashed potatoes and green beans.
3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives or scallion greens
Lightly smash garlic cloves with the side of a large knife to loosen the skins. Peel; cut the large ones in half. Sprinkle chicken with ⅛ teaspoon salt and pepper.
Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until beginning to brown, about 2 minutes. Remove to a plate with a slotted spoon.
Add the chicken to the pan and cook until browned on one side, about 4 minutes. Turn it over and return the garlic to the pan. Add wine and cook for 1 minute.
Whisk broth, mustard, flour and the remaining ⅛ teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Add the mixture to the pan; bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to maintain a lively simmer. Cover and cook until the chicken is cooked through and the garlic is tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Serve the chicken with the sauce, sprinkled with chives (or scallion greens).

My husband and I used boneless skinless chicken thighs so we didn't have to deal with the bones. Still delicious!
I would add a lot more garlic :)

This dish is amazing...simple, full of flavor, great sauce. I used chicken breasts instead of the drumsticks, cut the salt a little but other than that, followed the recipe exactly. Sauce is smooth. The garlic cooked up sweet and tender. This will be a regular table item in my house! You could easily double it and serve to company.
Pros: Easy, quick, on hand items,
