Simple Garlic Chicken Breasts

This is a great chicken dish. I have made it for family as well as for a group of 20. It refrigerates well overnight. If you like lots of sauce, increase the recipe accordingly. Great sides include: oven roasted potatoes, mashed potatoes, rice, salad with a simpe dressing.

(Do not add the sauce until you are ready to bake and serve.)


  1. 1Divide each breast into quarters. Lighted pound each breast to appoximately 1/4 inch thickness.
  1. 1Pat each piece of chicken dry.
  2. 2Salt and pepper each side of chicken to taste.
  3. 3Dredge the chicken pieces in corn starch. Shake off all excess corn starch.
  4. 4Pour about 1/2 cup good olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Toss in 4 cloves of minced garlic. Let the garlic cook, but do not let it burn. Remove the garlic from the oil. Put it on the side, we can throw it into the sauce.
  5. 5Turn the heat up on the frying pan to high. Once hot, brown each side of the chicken breasts. If the pan is hot enought, this will happen quickly. Chicken may or may not be cooked through depending on the thickness, but it will finish cooking later.
  6. 6Remove each browned piece from the pan and put it in a shallow baking dish.
  7. 7Preheat your oven to 350.
