I literally have hundreds of delicious recipes, but every now and then a few really great simple recipes come my way. This recipe is just that perfect example. If you're a garlic lover like me, then you're going to cherish this recipe.
What you will need:
2 tbsps olive oil 2 tbsps butter chicken thighs & legs ( or your favs)
40 cloves of peeled garlic 4 tbsps cognac
1 1/2 cups white wine 1 tbsp fresh thyme
2 tbsps flour 2 tbsps heavy cream
In large pot: oil & butter to brown chicken, then remove meat. Add garlic and saute 1 min. Add 2 tbsps of cognac & all of the wine. Bring to boil. Re-add chicken, add thyme, cover & simmer 30 mins.
Then, you will remove the chicken again. Remove also 1 cup of sauce and add to it 2 tbsps of flour, whisk, and STRAIN back into sauce. Add last 2 tbsps of cognac & cream. Again re-add chicken and into 200° oven to keep warm until serving.
Serve with quinoa that has been prepared with chicken broth, dried currants, slivered almonds & fresh mint.
