Ingredients

  • 3 heads garlic, about 40 cloves *(see Gr8 tip below)
  • 2 3 ½ pound chickens, cut into eighths (I used packaged breasts and thighs with skin and bones.)
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 Tablespoons Cognac, divided (I did not have Cognac so I used Brandy.)
  • 1 ½ cups dry white wine
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons heavy cream

Notes

Gr8 Tips:
  • *When pealing the garlic, cut out any green sprouts and discard.
  • I was not able to find the chicken already cut up so I bought 4 breasts and 4 thighs with the skin and bones.
  • This dish is perfect to make ahead of time. I made it one afternoon and stored it in a casserole dish in the frig and the next night I warmed it up in a 350℉ oven for about 30 minutes covered with foil.
