40 Cloves Garlic Chicken

The recipe that I looked at a long time ago and I plan to make it and it's a goodness, tender, aromatic, otherwise it can't be, it's just a classic French recipe.

I found many variants on the internet, simpler and more sophisticated - I chose a simple combination, I took from one side of another blog something else and I think I was right. It's very simple but it's no longer an ordinary chicken in the oven, it's a delicacy ... and you can enjoy your family without much complications.

Garlic becomes very fragrant, soft and you will come to eat it plain on bread.


1 piece
or you can only use thighs
Garlic cloves
40 pieces
White dry wine
100 ml
or 50 ml of brandy
Sunflower oil
50 ml
1 tsp
0.25 tsp
Dried marjoram
0.5 tsp
0.25 tsp

Step by step

Step 1

Wash the chicken well, cut it and cut it into small pieces. Dry the pieces of meat well on a paper towel.

Step 2

Pour oil into a hot pan, let the oil heat well (to brown the chicken, not to boil it).

Carefully place the chicken pieces and let them brown.

Step 3

I recommend using a sieve to protect the walls from oil - when frying, a little oil jumps here.

Turn the chicken pieces over and brown them well on all sides.

Step 5

The garlic is cleaned, although in some variants I saw that it is left with the peel - I said it is more convenient to eat like this - and I did well.

Step 9

Put the chicken pieces in a simple oven tray, in which you spread a lot of aluminum foil (so you can cover the meat on top).

Or use a smaller oven tray with a lid.

Step 11

Wrap the meat well with foil or if you have a tray with a lid, put the lid on.

Put the meat in the oven over medium heat - 180-200 degrees for 30 minutes.

Step 12

After this time, remove the tray from the oven, remove the lid or foil on top and with a brush grease all the chicken pieces with the sauce formed. Put them in the oven for another 10-15 minutes - I would recommend removing them and greasing them, but it would be enough at least once.

I'm thinking now why doesn't a programmer invent something so we can smell this food in the pictures :) To quickly convince you to run to the market, prepare the recipe and see what goodness it is

Good appetite!
