Chicken and Garlic Stew


"Don't let the name of this fool you - it is elegant enough for dinner guests. I've made several slight revisions over the years. I prefer skinless, boneless chicken breasts for the health value, and I do a single layer in a 'bring to the table' shallow baking dish. Suggestion: Spread the soft garlic cloves on some crusty bread, like butter. The flavor is not overpowering!"

  2. Place olive oil in a heavy oven-safe Dutch oven which can be tightly covered. Add 1/3 of the chicken, garlic, parsley, celery leaves, tarragon, salt, white pepper, allspice, cinnamon and dry white wine. Mix. Repeat two more times.
  3. Cover pot tightly and place in preheated oven, cook for about 1 1/4 hours. The chicken will not be brown, but moist and succulent. If desired, serve with crusty bread to mop up the sauce.

I modified this recipe a great deal, but the mix of ingredients stayed about the same.. it was wonderful! Tasty and the chicken was so succulent.

This is an excellent recipe. I fed this to my family and guest. I will be making this again...(O: Sincerely, Debbie A.

Totally overpowering. No matter what the author of this recipe may say, the amount of garlic used is immense. Unless you are a chain smoker your taste buds will be utterly devastated by this r...

My daughter and I both really liked this. My husband thought the combination of spices was too weird though so I probably won't be making this one again.

Dangerous combination: Way too much salt and yet, not a lot of flavor! I'm not even sure what to recommend to make it better.

Excellent! The best recipe I have found for using chicken legs. I pulled the skin off of the legs before cooking. I also used only about 20 cloves of garlic instead of the 50. Turned out tender,...

WoW! I love garlic but I had to pick my mouth up from the ground after reading the amount of garlic...I made this recipe in a 9 x 13 pan instead of a pot....It turned out excellent .....and nex...
