“Modified from EatingWell: May/June 2012. The original recipe called for chicken drumsticks. The whole cloves of garlic turn mild and buttery when they’re simmered with chicken in a simple white wine-mustard sauce in this garlic chicken recipe for two. Serve with mashed potatoes or rice, and green beans or broccoli.”

Directions

  1. Lightly smash garlic cloves with the side of a large knife to loosen the skins. Peel; cut the large ones in half.
  2. Sprinkle chicken with 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper.
  3. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until beginning to brown, about 2 minutes. Remove to a plate with a slotted spoon.
  4. Add the chicken to the pan and cook until browned on one side, about 5-6 minutes. Turn it over and return the garlic to the pan.
  5. Add wine and cook for 1 minute.
  6. Whisk broth, mustard, flour and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt in a small bowl.
  7. Add the mixture to the pan; bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to maintain a lively simmer.
  8. Cover and cook until the chicken is cooked through and the garlic is tender, 10-11 minutes.
  9. Serve the chicken with the sauce, sprinkled with chives (or scallion greens).
