This was a very tasty and simple dish. The only changes I made was that I added a whole can of chicken broth instead of the 1 cup it asked for and used cooking wine since that's what I had. I also used boneless chicken breasts instead because that's what I had. I thickened the sauce accordingly. Everything else was the same. It was so good. Will definitely make this again.
I was expecting this dish to be somewhat lacking in flavor, but I was proven wrong. I love this dish and cannot wait to eat it again.
My boyfriend and I love this recipe!!! It was delicious!!!
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. Pros: 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. Pros: Delicious and Moist Cons: Peeling the garlic is a pain.
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. Pros: great garlic flavor Cons: sauce never thickened
Wonderful! 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! Pros: Easy and delicious. Cons: none
Should have used Chicken Breasts You know, I cook from eatingwell.com 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. Pros: Easy Cons: Blah
