• Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic

    Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic. Juicy and tender chicken thighs pan fried and served with tons of garlic and an amazing sauce!

    Hi guys! It’s Kelley back from Chef Savvy! Today I am sharing this AMAZING Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic! This is one of my favorite dishes to prepare. Juicy chicken thighs pan fried and served with ton’s of garlic and an amazing sauce.

    The chicken get’s nice and crispy on the outside and is incredibly juicy and tender on the inside. After the chicken is pan fried I add flour and milk to the pan to create a quick gravy. It is perfect over the chicken and mashed potatoes!

    Serve with a veggie and dinner is on the table in less than an hour!
