Happy June! I am counting down to our big trip back to Malaysia, 8 days from now precisely. I have a ton of things to do before then; one of the most important things is to use up all the ingredients I have accumulated in my fridge and pantry—a ton of garlic, lots of frozen chicken, leftover chicken broth, plain yogurt, half bottle of white wine, etc.
Sometimes, the most random ingredients pair so flawlessly together, and this is exactly how this amazing and absolutely scrumptious creamy garlic chicken was concocted. The recipe is inspired by this rustic chicken with garlic gravy recipe, but I used yogurt to make the creamy sauce.
For the chicken, I used skin-on chicken thighs, but I deboned the thighs. This will ensure that you get the best of the chicken thighs: moist, tender, crispy on the bottom but not dry, with skin and without bones. This is similar to how I made my chili lime chicken and chipotle lime chicken. That’s the way go to with chicken thighs, trust me on that – deboned and skin-on!
This is a super easy skillet chicken recipe, but I finished it off with 1 minute broiling in the oven to give the chicken skin a little chars, which is an optional step. This creamy garlic chicken is delightful with some pasta, and they are done in about 20 minutes. Bon appetit!
