Reviews for Chicken with Garlic Sauce
"This chicken is amazing! It's easy and flavor-filled. I made one change: I used 9-10 garlic cloves, minced instead of sliced. I think that evened the flavor out better. The rosemary gives a unique flavor that some may not like, but I did!Oh, and I had no sage, so I omitted it, and it was fine"
"We really didn't seem to enjoy this recipe. Even though it had so much garlic, you couldn't really get a garlic taste without biting into one of the slices of garlic. It seemed kind of plain. Perhaps if the garlic were roasted, it would make a difference. Made a very pretty presentation, however."
"loved it. Made it with pinot grigio, delicious!!!"
