Roasted Garlic Chicken

I am such a lover of anything garlic- potatoes, chicken, vegetables, lasagna, you name it!
I made this Roasted Garlic Chicken dish and the garlicky flavor that it produced was superb.
It was not overpowering as I feared it might be.
This would be perfect with some mashed potatoes and a fresh veggie.

3/4 cup chicken broth
1-1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1-1/2 teaspoons flour
1 head garlic, cloves separated
1-1/2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
12-14oz chicken breasts, pounded thin then cut in half
salt & pepper

  1. Whisk together chicken broth, Worcestershire sauce, and flour in a bowl then set aside. Peel garlic cloves then chop large cloves in half.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat then add garlic cloves and cook until light golden brown (dark golden brown will taste burnt and bitter) stirring often. Remove cloves to a bowl then set aside.
  3. Season chicken breasts on both sides with salt and pepper, then add to skillet. Saute until golden brown on one side, 2-3 minutes, then flip and add toasted garlic cloves and chicken broth mixture. Turn heat to high and bring liquid to a boil then place a lid on top, turn heat down to medium-low, and then simmer until chicken is cooked through, 5-7 minutes.
  4. Remove chicken from skillet then turn heat up to medium-high and simmer sauce until thickened, 3-4 minutes. Spoon sauce and garlic cloves over chicken breasts then serve.
