Reviews for Garlic Lover's Chicken
Sort By :
"Delicious! The chicken was so juicy and tender! This recipe is a keeper! I doubled the butter, juice, and garlic mixture just to make sure all the chicken was covered. I also added extra garlic b/c we love it!"
"The first time I tasted this recipe was at a friend's house. She served it cold & we made sandwiches out of it. I got the recipe from her that day! I make Garlic Lover's Chicken for dinner and eat it hot, straight from the oven. I also like having leftovers because it is just as good cold. It can be made with chicken drumsticks or thighs also."
"Very tender and juicy not dry it also has great flavor."
"Just made this tonight and it was great! Very easy and very tasty... I made one adjustment: I marinated the chicken in Italian dressing for an hour, and then didn't need to dip the chicken in milk. I will definitely make this again."
"Reasonably quick to prepare, and delicious. Wasn't amazing, though."
