Chicken with 40 Garlic Cloves

April 19th is National Garlic Day! Garlic is not only healthy for you, but it adds flavor to so many dishes. Try this dish for a delicious date night or Sunday dinner. It seems like a ton of garlic, but as it cooks with the chicken thighs, the garlic becomes super sweet and helps to develop a yummy sauce.

                                                    

Chicken with 40 Garlic Cloves

Serves 6-8

8 chicken thighs (skin on, bone in)
1 bunch green onion, sliced thin
10 sprigs fresh thyme
40 cloves peeled garlic
1/2 cup white wine
Olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large oven-safe pot (such as a Dutch oven) over medium-high heat. Season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper.


3. Working in batches, place the chicken thighs in the pot, skin side down, and cook until browned, about 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.

4. In the same pot, add the green onion and half the thyme leaves and cook for 1 minute.

5. Add half the garlic. Top with the chicken thighs, remaining garlic, wine and thyme sprigs. Season with salt and pepper. Place the pot in the oven (covered) and cook for 1 and 1/2 hours.




Place chicken and sauce on a platter and serve. How good does that look? :)
