Garlic Chicken with Herbs
4 boneless skinless chicken thighs (or breast) about 1 pound
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon butter
10 garlic cloves, peeled & halved
¼ cup white wine or chicken broth
1 ½ teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
½ teaspoon minced fresh sage
1 cup chicken broth
Hot cooked rice of your choice, or mashed potatoes
Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper to taste. In a large skillet, heat butter over medium high heat; brown chicken on both sides. Remove from pan, reserving drippings.
In the same skillet, sauté garlic in drippings over medium-high heat until light golden brown. Add wine and herbs; bring to a boil, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Cook until the mixture is almost evaporated. Add broth and chicken; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, until a thermometer inserted in chicken reads at least 170 degrees, 10 to 12 minutes.
To serve, spoon pan juices over chicken.
Serve with cooked, hot rice.
