Chicken with 20 Cloves of Garlic

I know, I know...20 cloves of garlic???? Sounds like so much, but as garlic cooks, it's flavor mellows out. It becomes very soft after cooking.  After the chicken and garlic have cooked, you can either leave the cloves of garlic on the plate and enjoy them with the chicken or you can smash them up and mix them with butter to make a complex butter for rolls or bread with your dinner. Either way, garlic brings a lot of flavor to whatever you're cooking. The recipe for this yummy supper is below...

Before you get to the recipe, here are a few posts from Cafe' Hoffy that might also interest you. I love cooking and I love crafting and that's what I write about. Just click on any of the pictures and you will be redirected to that post on Cafe' Hoffy.
For a quick supper or lunch, Club Quesadillas are and easy and everyone loves them. Add some soup and you have an inexpensive dinner or lunch that everyone will love. Homemade Chocolate Chip cake is the best. I love chocolate chip ice cream and chocolate chip cookies. So why note chocolate chip cake? This cake is very moist and will disappear very, very quickly.
At some time in everyone's lives we are asked to plan a baby shower, wedding shower, or an event that requires a theme. Party planning is easier that it looks. Yes, it takes some time, but when all is said and done and you have completed a successful event, you can be proud that you did it yourself. Well, not totally with yourself, you'll most likely need others to put it all together. But, you'll get lots of raves for your efforts.

The Ultimate Frozen Strawberry Margarita is part of a post on "salsa". You can check the post out on Cafe' Hoffy, "There's Salsa...and then there's "SALSA". Many recipes for quick appetizer salsas and beverages to go with that great salsa.

Chicken and 20 Cloves of Garlic
Ingredients:
4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 lb.)
20 cloves of garlic, peeled
2 T. cooking oil
3/4 c. fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/4 c. Kraft Light Classic Caesar Dressing
1/4 c. Kraft Grated Parmesan Cheese

Directions:
  1. Heat large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat with 2 tablespoons cooking oil. Add chicken and garlic; cook 4 min., turning chicken after 2 min.
  2. Stir in broth and dressing; cover skillet with lid. Cook chicken 3 to 5 min. on each side or until done (165ºF).
  3. Sprinkle with Parmesan; cover. Remove from heat. Let stand 1 min. 
  4. Optional...I like my chicken a little crispier. To make it a little crispier I would turn my broiler on and move the pan to the oven broiler and crisp it up for about 3-5 minutes.  Don't walk away, you might have burned chicken for dinner.
Here is a quick video from Kraft on how to make chicken and 20 cloves of garlic. I always think it's helpful when the original recipe has a video attached. It helps with guesswork when you're not sure.

I don't know about you, but I absolutely love "Pinterest". It's my go to for just about everything. I've been collecting pins for almost 12 years. I think I've pinned over 15,000 pins. I know I'll probably never get to all of them, but at least now my ideas are all in one place. At one point I had recipes in saved folders in Outlook. I also had hard copies of all my ideas and recipes. I had my Pinterest pins and I also saved recipes and craft ideas on Facebook. I organized them the best that I could, but every time I needed that certain craft idea or recipe, I couldn't find it. 
How to Organize all those "Pins"...
In January I spent the whole month going through every place I had a recipe or a craft idea and I pinned them all to Pinterest. It was a lot of work. I think I had over 4,000 saved items on Facebook alone. But, it was January and what else is there to do. I purged and pinned and sorted and saved hard copies of many things in file folders labeled for easier access. 

After all the sorting and pinning I needed to straighten out all of those pins on Pinterest. Everything was now gone off of Facebook and off my files in Outlook. Now they were all in Pinterest. So I spent another week straightening out my Pinterest account. It was well worth the trouble. I purged things that I knew I would never get to and organized the remaining pins in categories with sub-categories. Now I can get my fingers on anything in a matter of seconds, where before it took me forever trying to think where I put that item. Now all my ideas and recipes can be reached anywhere at any time...on my phone when I'm shopping or on my computer or tablet whenever I need something, it's there. What a great feeling...was it worth it...DAMN yes!

       Blueberry Mojitos                         Easy Chicken Enchiladas
If you have never had a Blueberry Mojito, you need to. So delicious and refreshing. This drink is part of my post called "Ahhh...those Summer Breezes". Easy Chicken Enchiladas are exactly what they say, "easy". A quick supper for those evenings when you don't really want to go out, but also don't want to mess up the kitchen. If you like Mexican food, you'll love these.
OK...this dessert is "death by chocolate". Oh my goodness, it hits everyone of my favorite combinations...dark chocolate and raspberries. You need to try this...it is so good! My cute gingham afghan is one of my favorites. I love gingham. It's an easy granny square afghan. I made it full size, but it would be really cute for a baby shower gift.

So ends my post on Chicken and 20 Cloves of Garlic. Like I said in the beginning, this chicken is so good. I'm partial though, because I love garlic. I use garlic in just about every recipe I use for dinner. It can be Italian bread with garlic butter to asparagus with bacon and sprinkled with garlic, or making a good dressing for salads. Garlic always takes the recipe to the next level.
Always remember..."Life's short, eat dessert first!"...words to live by
