Garlic Chicken


  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken thighs
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive oil
  • 12 fresh rosemary sprigs
  • Ad
  • 8 garlic cloves (6 smashed, 2 minced)


Place chicken between sheets of plastic wrap and pound to 1/2 inch thickness. Season with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, combine oil, 8 sprigs of rosemary, and smashed garlic. Cook over medium heat to low heat until garlic is golden, pressing garlic and rosemary to release flavor, about 2 minutes. With a slotted spoon, remove and discard flavorings.

Place cooked chicken in skillet and cook over medium to high heat, turning, until cooked through and golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes. During the last 2 minutes of cooking, add minced garlic and stir to coat chicken pieces. Garnish with remaining rosemary and serve with fresh steamed vegetables for a delicious, healthy dinner.

I do a variation of this. Double the garlic cloves; peel but leave them whole. Quarter four or five potatoes. Toss all of that together as in the original recipe. Squeeze the juice of a whole lemon over the whole thing before baking. It's really yummy, and the garlic gets all soft and mushy.

This is a great Chinese meal that cooks up quick and easy. Prepare all the ingredients before you start cooking and have them ready to throw in the pot. It's delicious, nice and tangy, and made as hot or mild as you wish. Serve with noodles or rice.


  • 2 chicken breasts cut in thin strips
  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch, divided use
  • 1 Tbsp. dry sherry
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 5 Tbsp. white vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. oil, divided use
  • 2 carrots, julienne
  • 1 sweet red pepper, julienne
  • 3 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. 5-spice powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper, or to taste


Mix the chicken strips with 1 Tbsp. of the cornstarch, sherry, and garlic, and let stand 10 minutes while you prepare the other ingredients. Combine the remaining cornstarch, broth, and vinegar and set aside. Heat 1 Tbsp. oil over medium high heat. Stir fry chicken on medium high for 3 minutes and remove.

Add 1 Tbsp. oil and cook the veggies for 2 to 3 minutes, until tender-crisp. Return the chicken and add the 5 spice and the cayenne pepper and stir fry 2 minutes, until chicken is cooked through. Add the broth mixture and cook, stirring constantly, until it boils and thickens. Add the soy sauce, mix in, and remove from heat.

This is very pretty when made with a mixture of yellow and red peppers.
