This is the perfect option for an easy, tasty weeknight dinner recipe. This creamy garlic chicken is simple, flavoursome and quick; the perfect recipe to get you and your family filled up and satisfied as speedily and healthily as possible. Sure it has a good glug of rich fat from the cream, but chicken is a great choice as a lean protein, and serving this up with plenty of fresh greens and some carbs makes for a meal that hits all of the three main food groups - fat, carbohydrate, and protein.
It’s great with rice, pasta or noodles - even mash - and some side veg. Alternatively, you can even forego the carbs here and serve it up straight with some greens - think cabbage, green beans or tenderstem broccoli - for something hearty and satisfying yet low-carb. The delicious, garlicky sauce never fails to have me licking my fingers by the end - I guess this might be as close to a KFC ‘finger lickin’ good’ chicken recipe as fooodlove is going to get!
