40 clove garlic

So,earlier this week, I was watching BBCAmerica's food shows that they have been airing in the mornings/afternoons.

One of them, (Good Eats? ) did the old 40 cloves of garlic recipe and it sort of made me think. It's one of those recipes you see all over the place but never really make.

I had some bone in chicken breasts and thought, "What the hell..."

Only had 31 cloves... peeled them and simmered them for ten minutes in a pot of water.

Browned the chicken in butter, removed from pan and then, threw in a diced jalapeno, seeds and all.

Added the chicken, the garlic, a shot of scotch, and a cup of broth and simmered for twenty-five minutes.

Mashed some taters, sauteed some beans with bacon and reduced the sauce.

Way tangy and moist!
