Chicken with 40 cloves of Garlic

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Serves 4


8 bone-in, skin-on, chicken thighs

salt and freshly ground pepper

2 tablespoons butter

40 cloves garlic peeled

1 1/2 cups chicken broth

1 tablespoon thyme dried

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons milk


1. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add the chicken thighs in, skin-side down, and sear both sides until they are golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

2. Add the garlic cloves to the skillet, stirring frequently, cook until they are golden brown, about 4-5 minutes. Stir in the chicken broth and thyme and bring to a boil.  

3. Return chicken to skillet and simmer until a thermometer inserted reads 165 degrees, about 25 to 30 minutes. Transfer chicken to a serving platter, reserving the juices remaining in the skillet. 

4. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and the milk. Whisk the flour-milk mixture into the skillet until the sauce is thickened slightly, about 1 to 2 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

5. Pour the sauce over the chicken and serve immediately.
