Chicken & 40 Cloves
Submitted by Sam_I_Am.
- Chicken cut into pieces
- 40 cloves Garlic
- sprigs Thyme
- 1/2 C Olive Oil
Peel 40 cloves of garlic. Yeah, 40.
Salt and pepper the chicken pieces then sear them both sides in a little bit of oil in a dutch oven. Toss in all the garlic, a bit of salt, and a few sprigs of thyme.
Then pour in half a cup (!) of olive oil and cook in a 350 degree oven for an hour and a half.
When it's done, the garlic has infused into the oil and become soft and spreadable. Brush some bread with the garlic oil and broil till brown. Then smear on garlic and sprinkle with grated parmesan.
Serve with mustard greens, cooked with bacon and onions. I couldn't find any way to plate this that didn't look ordinary. :(
Save the oil in that pot!
When it cooled, I moved it to an old margarine container. In the fridge, the chicken in the mixture solidifies, and you get an awesome salty, thymey, garlic spread. Instant garlic bread for a week. (If you don't finish it earlier...)
