Whole garlic cloves are mild when simmered with chicken in a simple white wine-mustard sauce in this garlic chicken recipe. Serve with smashed potatoes with buttermilk and sautéed green beans.Ingredients
Total Time: 40 minutes
2 heads garlic, cloves separated
8 chicken drumsticks, (about 2 1/2 pounds), skin removed, trimmed
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/3 cup white wine
1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
1/3 cup chopped fresh chives, or scallion greens
4 servings, 2 drumsticks & about 1/3 cup sauce each
Lightly smash garlic cloves with the side of a large knife to loosen the skins. Peel; cut larger ones in half. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper.
Heat oil in a large 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.
Add chicken to the pan and cook until browned on one side, about 4 minutes. Turn it over and return the garlic to the pan. Add wine and cook for 1 minute.
Whisk broth, mustard, flour and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Add the mixture to the pan; bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to maintain a lively simmer. Cover and cook until the chicken is cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes. Serve sprinkled with chives (or scallion greens).
