Garlic Sauce Chicken: the dish that sits at the top of the list of our favorite chicken recipes, for now and for forever. Amen.
Hi ya, friends! Happy Happy Sunday to you all! <3 Hope that this saucy chicken finds you well!
We had some wonderful dinner guests couple of weeks ago and I fed them this amazingness called garlic sauce chicken plus cake, and it reminded me to update it here and share it with you all, once again. Trust me, you can’t go wrong with any of that. It’s a pretty damn good recipe.
This dish though… Oddly enough, I only serve it when we have company. That’s not to say that it’s hard to make. In fact, it’s very easy to make, however, if you want to make an impression, you gotta serve it to yo’ friends!
OR, serve them this Garlic Yogurt Baked Chicken, which is also ah.may.zing!
Which brings me to my next point. If you are looking to wow some friends and family, or even serve something different, THIS is it! YES, IT is! Would I lie to YOU? No.
Feel free to use more garlic if you want, but not less than what I’ve recommended. Also, bring out the best white wine that you got because this chicken is all about the garlic and the wine. They go hand in hand. It’s like garlic-infused-wine-chicken-something. It’s delicious. That’s all we need to know.
Have a great rest of this beautiful Sunday!
