I had intended to make this with chicken thighs as I thought sauce on drumsticks might get a bit messy, but the store was out of both so I bought bone-in chicken breasts; not the best choice as they took so long to cook, even after attempting to butterfly them halfway through the cooking time (should've gone boneless and pounded them thin or cut them up). As for those complaining that the sauce was thin, just keep cooking it down! I was using a large pan as it was the only one I had with a lid and due to the relatively large cooking surface, I was in trouble of ending up with NO sauce as it kept evaporating (and thickening). So I kept adding wine lol! Peeling garlic can be a bit fiddly, but occasionally my store stocks packages of pre-peeled garlic. Obviously more expensive than whole unpeeled heads, but a great time-saver and you can freeze the rest.

Delicious, uses every-day ingredients

Hand Down Best Drumsticks

I have an extremely picky eater and am not fond of drumsticks, but all six of us will eat this. The chicken is moist. I don't like peeling the garlic, but other than that it's good.

I made a variation of this last night. I switched the legs for boneless-skinless thighs because they were on sale and I'm a poor college student, and when I was at the store I forgot to get Dijon, so I took a huge risk and substituted honey mustard. It sounds disgusting, but it worked. Everything was quite tasty.

Didn't live up to expectations

This recipe did not live up to my expectations. Love garlic! In this recipe, the garlic does shine. However, the sauce is a little off-putting. Couldn't put my finger on it; don't think it was the mustard. Perhaps the combination of the wine and chicken broth. Were I to make it again, I would replace the chicken broth with white wine, but not the whole cup. But there are better "garlic chicken" recipes out there so won't try this again.

great garlic flavor
