Ingredients needed for that recipe:

1kg of chicken pieces (thighs works well)
30 cloves of garlic
1 small glass of white wine (use what you drink)
salt and pepper to season

100 ml creme fraiche ( optional)

pair with a white burgundy or chardonnay.

This French cuisine 30 cloves garlic chicken recipe dates back from our grandmas time and there is no clear origin that I know of as to why someone decided to cook a chicken with 30 or even 40 cloves of garlic. I know that the French soil is perfect for garlic growing and many region also have farm chickens widely available so perhaps that back in the days, farmers did not have much else to cook just decided to use what they had: garlic and chicken.but who knows?

Anyway in this modern day french bistro food version, we are simply sauteing pieces of chicken with lots of garlic cloves. the dish is then flambe with cognac and deglazed with white wine to create that super concentrated jus full of flavors. The garlics clove are cooked in their sleeves so the chicken does not taste that must of garlic but what you do get, is garlic cloves that are cooked from inside and almost become pureed garlic.

in this video I give two version of that easy garlic chicken recipe. one version is the original French bistro chicken recipe and the second is my twist of that recipe where I only create a quick creamy garlic sauce at the end. no use to say that if garlic is your thing you have to try that 30 cloves garlic chicken recipe.
