#TMCKitchenSeries: Easy Peasy Garlic Chicken


It’s been a while since I last posted a recipe. Since I am currently yaya-less, I am officially in charge of doing the cooking. This also means I have to whip dishes that are quick and easy to do since I still have two kids trolling along, plus online work and gazillion household chores I never get to do. 

Anyway, my husband and I love chicken that we could it eat everyday. Since I want to stay true to “Easy Kitchen Recipes” mantra, I came up with this dish: Garlic ChickenGarlic Chicken 3The good thing about this dish is that it requires ingredients you can easily in the kitchen: butter, chicken, (lots of) garlic, chicken cubes, salt, and pepper. Garlic Chicken 1Simply season the chicken with salt and pepper. Then, cook garlic cloves in butter and olive oil fr a few minutes. Add chicken and chicken cubes dissolved in water then season to taste. 

Easy, right? 

Here’s the best part: I often cook this in big batches because I also pair it with salads (for breakfast) or use it as a sandwich filling when the husband and kids are hungry. This saves me time in preparing meals, which I can spare for other equally important tasks, like doing the laundry.  Garlic Chicken 2
