Herb Chicken with Roasted Garlic

Gluten Free Living – 2014

Herb Chicken with Roasted Garlic is one tasty chicken dish. And, it’s oh, so, E-A-S-Y! I mean it. It only uses a handful of ingredients. Yet, it is wonderful when all the roasted garlic is served on top of the chicken. It uses thyme, rosemary and sage along with a little chicken broth and lemon juice for baking.

Plus, you roast three huge garlic bulbs at the same time. The garlic is squeezed out onto the chicken before serving. It isn’t too strong this way, yet it adds a delectable, subtle flavor. The only thing I would add to this lovely chicken recipe is a little pepper for some additional flavoring.

I found this recipe in Betty Crocker’s Best Chicken Cookbook when I was perusing through my daughter-in-law’s cookbooks a couple of years ago. I copied down several recipes from that cookbook and each one has been marvelous. I loved the simplicity of this recipe. The ease of putting it together, and the fact that most of the ingredients I already had on hand was great. I did go out and purchase the three garlic bulbs but that was all.

Last week I made up this dish when my sister, Phillis, flew in from Colorado Springs. She flew in and stayed with us the day before we both headed out to Florida (with my husband) for my younger brother’s funeral. My siblings (six in all–now five) are scattered all over the country so we don’t get to see each other very much.

We determined after seeing each other again that we would each make more effort in the future to visit one another. Sometimes we just get toooooo busy! Phillis is trying to watch her diet because she’s diabetic so I served Herb Chicken with Roasted Garlic, a delicious side of Skinny Roasted Vine-Ripe Tomatoes and a Fruit Salad. Yum. Everything turned out so well.

If you’re looking for a tasty and simple chicken dish, Herb Chicken with Roasted Garlic sure fits the bill. It’s easy, economical, and quick. Not to mention it’s savory and delicious. You don’t have to use boneless chicken breasts like I did in this recipe. Boneless or bone-in chicken thighs, or a whole cut-up chicken would work just as well. The only thing you adjust is cooking times. You’ll be licking your chops in no time!

We loved the roasted garlic in this recipe. When the garlic is roasted it is not as strong and fragrant as raw garlic, but it sure tastes wonderful!

    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your brother, Teresa. That is really sad. I’m glad your family could be together to support each other. You are in my prayers. I bet your sister appreciated such a delicious meal and being able to spend time together.
