And now, some chicken.

This is a great recipe for fans of the dutch oven. It’s very easy and tastes amazing so don’t wait to try this out.

The hardest part to this recipe is peeling the 30-40 garlic cloves. I know it sounds pretty daunting but it isn’t that strong on the garlicky taste once it cooks for a while.
