Garlic chicken marinade
In a deep bowl, mix together 1/4 cup wine, 1/4 cup chicken broth, garlic, salt, pepper, lemon juice, Italian seasoning. Add chicken and marinate for at least 1 hour or overnight for a deeper flavor.
Garlic chicken gravy
Cook the marinade in a nonstick pot on medium high heat until it’s reduced to a gravy consistency. If you like, you can also mix in diluted cornstarch or flour to make it thicker.
Chicken with garlic sauce
The sauce is made with wine, broth and flavored with 40 cloves garlic, salt, pepper, lemon juice, Italian seasoning. It’s cooked until it’s reduced and becomes thick.
Garlic chicken pasta
Serve this chicken with boiled spaghetti or just toss boiled noodles in the pot with the chicken and sauce. Garnish with some shredded parmesan cheese.
Creamy garlic chicken
There are 2 ways to make this meal creamy:
- Dilute cornstarch or flour with some water and mix that into the sauce.
- Add 1/3 cup cream cheese and mix that into the sauce. The flavor does change this way.
