I peeled my garlic by hand, but you could use garlic peeler or purchase the jar of peeled whole garlic from the grocery store. For this recipe, you want to keep the garlic cloves whole. The sink fills up pretty quickly when you’re peeling this much garlic! It smells nice now, but not so much in a couple of hours.
To keep my kitchen smelling fresh and clean, I used OdorKlenz Sink and Disposal Cleaner while the chicken was simmering. It’s super easy and works amazing. More on that in a minute…
40 Clove Garlic Chicken
Our recipe makes plenty for dinner and then leftovers, too! It’s a great dish for entertaining also.
40 Clove Garlic Chicken
Tender moist chicken in a creamy garlic sauce is perfect for weeknight meals and entertaining alike.
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 small onion, diced fine
- 8 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
- 40 cloves garlic peeled
- 1-1/2 cups chicken broth
- 1 tablespoon dried tarragon
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons milk
Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onions and let cook until they are tender. Push them to the outside edges of the pan.
Turn the temperature up to medium-high and sear both sides of the chicken for 1-2 minutes until golden brown.
Remove the chicken from the pan for the moment.
Reduce the heat to medium and add the whole peeled garlic cloves. Cook until golden brown and tender, stirring often.
Return the chicken to the pan and add the chicken stock. Sprinkle the tarragon into the pan, then bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover the pan and let the chicken cook for 25-30 minutes until it is cooked through.
To create the sauce, mix the milk and flour together in a small bow. Pour into the hot pan and stir to combine. Cook for a couple minutes until the sauce thickens.
Serve hot with pasta, rice or potatoes, if desired.
