Great weeknight dinner

Made the two-person version for husband and self using skinless/boneless chix breast. Hubby thought the dark meat would have been an improvement, but we loved it anyway. We both think you can never have too much garlic.

One caution: I was very light with the salt (on the meat and in the sauce) and it was still a bit much. The sauce seemed a little thin, so I let it reduce. That must have concentrated the saltiness. Next time I won't put salt in the sauce until after I'm satisfied with the consistency.

Quick, easy, delicious

Thanks for the good pointer

Thanks for the good pointer about salting post cosistency.


I used chicken breast and it turned out wonderful. I served it with mashed potatoes and the gravy from the chicken went perfectly with the potatoes. Don't be afraid of all the garlic. It becomes sweet as it cooks. A wonderful meal!

Easy and delicious.
Great Recipe!

Made this recipe with skinless thighs and tossed the sauce with a mixture of noodles and spinach to serve alongside the chicken. Turned out great!


This dish was absolutely delicious. I will definitely make it again. The garlic was buttery and the chicken tender. I think you could use less oil - maybe 2 Tbs instead of 3 - and I took the chicken out when done, then simmered the sauce a few minutes longer to thicken it. Wonderful!

easy, simple ingredients, simple prep, delicious!
Should have used Chicken Breasts

You know, I cook from almost every night. Tonight I didn't have time to skin the drumsticks, so the dinner turned out kinda slimy and the sauce wasn't thick or anything to write home about. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. Next time I'd try chicken breasts, but I don't think there'll be a next time.
