“Even though it doesn't take long to put together, this flavorful chicken tastes like it simmered all day. It’s wonderful with mashed potatoes and a green vegetable.”—Kathy Anderson, Rockford, Illinois

KATHY’S TIP: You can easily peel the garlic cloves by smashing them slightly with the flat side of a chef’s knife, or buy cloves that are already peeled to save time.

"This was good but I found it was alot more work then I had anticipated so I probably won't make it again. I thought it was a little too vinegary as well."

"This was delicious. It did require a bit of prep, slicing the shallots and peeling the garlic and some monitoring, but on the whole, it was easy to make and tasted delicious."
