Recipe by Martha
"Don't let the name of this fool you - it is elegant enough for dinner guests. I've made several slight revisions over the years. I prefer skinless, boneless chicken breasts for the health value, and I do a single layer in a 'bring to the table' shallow baking dish. Suggestion: Spread the soft garlic cloves on some crusty bread, like butter. The flavor is not overpowering!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

chicken legs, halved
chopped fresh parsley
ground white pepper
1 1/2 cups
This is absolutely delicious!!! I received so many compliments on my cooking by making this dish. I cut chicken breast (with bone and skin) in half and I don't measure the white pepper. I seasoned the chicken with the white pepper first and set it aside while I prepared the other ingredients. In order to peel the garlic easier, I boiled water in a sauce pan and dropped the heads of garlic into the water and let it sit for 1 minute. Then I removed the garlic and peeled it. This is a wonderful recipe!!! Excellent!!!
Totally overpowering. No matter what the author of this recipe may say, the amount of garlic used is immense. Unless you are a chain smoker your taste buds will be utterly devastated by this recipe. I made it for myself to test it out and almost had to throw the thing out, the flavor was so overpowering. Cutting the amount of garlic in half may work, however, the overall dish would be nothing special. Don;t expect this one to be the cure-all for your left-over thigh blues.
I modified this recipe a great deal, but the mix of ingredients stayed about the same.. it was wonderful! Tasty and the chicken was so succulent.
This is an excellent recipe. I fed this to my family and guest.
I will be making this again...(O:
My daughter and I both really liked this. My husband thought the combination of spices was too weird though so I probably won't be making this one again.
Excellent! The best recipe I have found for using chicken legs. I pulled the skin off of the legs before cooking. I also used only about 20 cloves of garlic instead of the 50. Turned out tender, flavorful and smelled great cooking. Will make it again.
Dangerous combination: Way too much salt and yet, not a lot of flavor! I'm not even sure what to recommend to make it better.
WoW! I love garlic but I had to pick my mouth up from the ground after reading the amount of garlic...I made this recipe in a 9 x 13 pan instead of a pot....It turned out excellent .....and next time I will use boneless... Thank you...
