Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic
Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic is a classic French dish, yes with 40 cloves of garlic, no more no less. Although it may seem like a lot of garlic, it mellows in flavor as it cooks and you end up with mild, buttery garlic and a moist and delicious chicken! A must try!
- 2 lbs chicken thighs boneless and skinless
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 40 cloves garlic cleaned but kept whole
- 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
- 1/4 tsp pepper or to taste
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp fresh dill
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme
- 1/2 cup white wine
- 1/2 cup chicken broth low sodium
- 1 tbsp fresh parsley chopped for garnish
Preheat oven: Preheat oven to 375 F degrees.
Prepare chicken: Clean the chicken thighs, pat them dry and cut them in half.
Cook chicken: In a large Dutch oven or oven proof skillet add the olive oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add chicken thighs and cook on both sides just until they start to brown and are no longer pink. Transfer the chicken to a plate.
Cook garlic: Add the cloves of garlic to the same skillet. Season with cumin, dill, thyme, salt, pepper and stir. Add the wine, stir a bit and scrape all the pieces from the bottom of the skillet, then cook for about 2 minutes just until the wine reduces a bit and the garlic starts to brown.
Finish cooking: Stir in the chicken broth then add the chicken back to the skillet. Cover the skillet with a lid and place in the oven for about 20 minutes.
Garnish and serve: Garnish with parsley and serve warm over rice or noodles.
Feel free to use whichever cut of chicken you prefer.
