Chicken with 20 Cloves of Garlic

Since posting this quick video highlighting a shortcut for cleaning a lot of garlic at once: I've been thinking about chicken and garlic. A lot of garlic

Chicken with 20 Cloves of Garlic ( Because 40 Cloves is Just Too Much! )

1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 lbs chicken leg quarters
20 cloves garlic, peeled
2 cups cherry tomatoes
1/2 c low sodium organic chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 c freshly chopped basil leaves
Whole grain baguette bread

  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. Heat butter and oil in a heavy ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until browned. Remove chicken to a plate.
  3. Add garlic to pan and cook until it begins to brown, about 1 minute, stirring frequently. Arrange chicken on top of garlic. Place tomatoes on top. Sprinkle salt. Add broth.
  4. Cover and place in oven. Cook 30 minutes, or until chicken is done. Sprinkle with fresh basil and pepper. Serve with baguette slices smeared with the roasted garlic from the pan. .
