Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    4 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
    2 tsp. olive oil
    1 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. black pepper
    40 cloves garlic, separate into cloves/skins on
    2 cups chicken broth, fat free

Directions

Makes 4 servings.
Heat olive oil in open fry pan that has a tight fitting lid. Brown chicken breast on both sides, seasoning with salt and pepper. Break garlic heads into individual cloves, but skins can remain on during the cooking process. When chicken is browned, add the 40 cloves to the fry pan as well as chicken broth. Cover fry pan with lid, reduce heat to medium low and cook for about 60 minutes. Add additional chicken broth if liquid becomes too low. Remove chicken from fry pan, keep warm. Pick out garlic skins from fry pan and discard. Pour remaining liquid and garlic through a fine mesh sieve, use a rubber spatula to help puree garlic through sieve. Return all juices and garlic puree to fry pan and heat till until thickened (will not require any flour!!). Serve garlic sauce with chicken.

(Optional - add baby potatoes to pan at the 30 minute mark and continue to cook with chicken until potatoes are tender - another 20-30 minutes). Great served with steamed green vegetables.
