Garlic Chive Chicken

I found this amazing recipe from www.allrecipes.com. It has this cool function where you can type in ingredients and it chugs out recipes you can use!

Anyhow the recipe I found was Garlic Chive Chicken.


Basically I love the sauce thats used for the dish because its infused with garlic, lemon, and chives! mmhmm. You could use the sauce over things like perogies or crab cakes. Check it out!


Ingredients

  • 1 head garlic
  • 1 (8 ounce) package egg noodles
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh chives

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Wrap the garlic head in foil, and bake 30 minutes, until cloves are soft. Remove from heat, and cool enough to handle.

2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add egg noodles and cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until al dente; drain.

3.Slice off the top of the garlic head, and squeeze the softened cloves into a medium bowl. Mix in the chicken broth, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.

4. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Lightly coat the chicken breast halves with flour, and cook in the skillet about 10 minutes on each side, until lightly browned. Set chicken aside, retaining skillet juices. Stir in the garlic mixture, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and return chicken to the skillet. Continue cooking the chicken about 5 minutes on each side, until no longer pink and juices run clear. Remove chicken, and arrange on plates over the egg noodles.

5. Mix the butter into the garlic sauce mixture in the skillet until melted, and stir in the chives. Spoon the sauce over the chicken and egg noodles to serve.
