Hi ya, friends! Happy Happy Sunday to you all! <3 Hope that this saucy chicken finds you well!

This recipe was originally published on December 14, 2014, and updated with new photos and content on September 3, 2017.

We had some wonderful dinner guests couple of weeks ago and I fed them this amazingness called garlic sauce chicken plus cake, and it reminded me to update it here and share it with you all, once again. Trust me, you can’t go wrong with any of that. It’s a pretty damn good recipe.

I also served some of those Feta Cheese Covered Olives, Spinach and Artichoke Dip Pizza, aaaaand Lemon Cheesecake Crescent Rolls. We LOVED all of it!

This dish though… Oddly enough, I only serve it when we have company. That’s not to say that it’s hard to make. In fact, it’s very easy to make, however, if you want to make an impression, you gotta serve it to yo’ friends!

OR, serve them this Garlic Yogurt Baked Chickenwhich is also ah.may.zing!

Which brings me to my next point. If you are looking to wow some friends and family, or even serve something different, THIS is it! YES, IT is! Would I lie to YOU? No.

Feel free to use more garlic if you want, but not less than what I’ve recommended. Also, bring out the best white wine that you got because this chicken is all about the garlic and the wine. They go hand in hand. It’s like garlic-infused-wine-chicken-something. It’s delicious. That’s all we need to know.

  1. Delicious! I added 1/2 cup of bone broth along with the wine, added mushrooms and onions, a couple tablespoons of butter at the end and put it under the broiler for about 3 minutes. I also added steamed brussel sprouts to the sauce the last few minutes. A definite keeper!

    I cooked this tonight and I noticed that I did not have a lot of garlic sauce. I changed the serving size to 6 since I had 6 chicken breasts and I used 1.5 cups of white wine per the instructions. How do I get more garlic sauce next time? I would love to put the chicken over pasta and have the sauce dripping.

  3. So delicious! Well seasoned, juicy chicken, flavorful and satisfying. Perfect in every way! Thank you for another fantastic recipe πŸ™‚

    This Garlic Sauce Chicken looks and sounds incredible! Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ I ran across this, plus many many more amazing recipes that you have on your Blog!! I can’t wait to try all of them πŸ™‚ Did you use boneless skinless Thighs?

  5. Boy, this was good. I made it with drumsticks, which were on sale today, so they took longer to cook. The sauce was terrific–so simple, just a few ingredients, but amazing! My husband, a/k/a Mr.Fussy, rated this very highly, and that is a true compliment. Definitely going on my favorites list, and I’m linking got it on my (new) blog’s FB page. A winner, Katerina!

    1. PS–The sauce was so good I literally licked the plate. Well, not quite; I ran my fingers over the plate and licked them. Not very good manners, but no one was watching. So I suggest serving with a crusty bread or mashed potatoes or rice to soak up all that goodness.
