If there is one ingredient that I use almost everyday in my kitchen, it’s probably garlic.
I love garlic. I love it in everything I make: stir-fry, stew, roasting, braising or as a marinade. Garlic impacts great aromas and flavors to protein such as chicken making it extremely delicious and flavorful.
This garlic chicken is the epitome of using garlic to make chicken extremely scrumptious and mouthwatering. The ingredients are very simple: garlic, chicken, salt, cayenne pepper and sugar.
I also opted to use garlic heads to roast the chicken, making it even more garlicky and tasty. Plus the roasted garlic is so great with the garlic chicken.
I used chicken thighs for my garlic chicken recipe. Instead of deboning the chicken, I kept them bone-in, but cutting two slits on the side of the thigh bone.
Then I rubbed the finely minced garlic inside the meat, infusing the chicken meat with the garlic. This is my secret technique to make my garlic chicken recipe even better. You may also like my creamy garlic chicken recipe.
