How to make it

  • Season chicken with salt and pepper. In a 10-inch skillet cook chicken and garlic cloves in hot oil over medium-high heat for 4 to 6 minutes or just until browned, turning once. Slowly add the 1/2 cup white wine, the 1/2 cup broth, the lemon juice, basil, oregano, and herbes de Provence (if using). Bring to boiling, reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 6 to 8 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink.
  • Using a slotted spoon, transfer the chicken and garlic to a warm serving platter; keep warm.
  • In a small bowl stir together the 2 Tbs. wine or broth and the flour. Stir into pan juices. Bring to boiling. Cook and stir for 1 minute more. (If sauce is too dry, add more wine or broth until it is the desired consistency). Spoon over chicken.
  • Serve with French bread, mashed potatoes, or rice.
  • Note: You can slip the skins off of the garlic as you eat the cooked cloves. Or if you prefer, peel the garlic cloves before cooking by using the flat side of a large knife to mash them slightly, then peel off the skins. It is also possible to buy a bag of already peeled garlic!

    This sound delicious, but I think the chicken has to simmer at least 30 minutes. 8 minutes just seems to me too little time to get done.

    WOW. I love garlic & this recipe is sure interesting. I have to try it cause it sounds really good. A real easy way to skin the garlic is to drop them in hot water for a couple of minutes. The skins almost slide off. Hope that helps. 5 forks from me
