This Oven Baked Garlic Chicken is so delicious. We found this recipe online and try to cook it in our own. We are passionate and enthusiastic to try anything we’ve found interesting in the internet. The original version has less sauce or gravy on it, it’s actually a roast. Since we love delicious sauces, we make our version almost braised-like. Nevertheless, It was so yummy! We love one pot dishes, having a beautiful cast iron skillet allows us cook, bake and serve the this dish in no time. From the pan to the table!
