Garlic Chicken

Flavorful, juicy garlic chicken that makes a perfect small course.

By Tapas, The Nest

Use chicken thighs for this dish because they remain juicier and are more flavorful than breasts, but chicken wings also work well. If you like a little heat, add a pinch of hot paprika or cayenne pepper with the sherry.


[post_ads]Makes 4 servings

  •     4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces, or 12 chicken wings, tips    removed
  •     Sweet paprika
  •     Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  •     1/3 cup olive oil
  •     6 cloves garlic, crushed, plus 2 cloves, minced
  •     3 fresh thyme sprigs
  •     2 bay leaves
  •     1/2 cup fino or manzanilla sherry
  •     1/2 cup chicken broth
  •     Chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley for garnish


Step 1: Rub the chicken with paprika, salt, and pepper and set aside at room temperature for at least 1 hour or preferably in the refrigerator at least 8 hours or up to overnight.

Step 2: Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Step 3: In a large sauté pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the crushed garlic and cook, stirring, until softened but not colored, 2 minutes. Add the chicken pieces and fry, turning as needed, until golden on both sides, 5 to 8 minutes. You want them nicely colored on the outside but not cooked through. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to paper towels to drain briefly, and then arrange the pieces in a cazuela or baking dish large enough to hold them in a single layer.
Step 4: Discard the crushed garlic from the oil and return the pan to low heat. Add the minced garlic and cook briefly. Add the thyme, bay, sherry, and broth, raise the heat to high, and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and pour over the chicken.

Step 5: Bake the chicken until cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and discard the bay and thyme. If the pan juices are thin, transfer them to a small saucepan and cook over medium high heat until reduced, and then return to the cazuela. Sprinkle with the parsley and serve at once.
