40 Clove Garlic Lemon Chicken // Paleo and Whole30


I’ve seen this recipe in various forms, and have been so intrigued by all the garlic!  40 cloves sounds like a lot, but it really isn’t!  I might add more next time I make it.  When it bakes, it gets golden on the outside and buttery smooth on the inside.  It’s not overpowering at all and so delicious!!  I added some onion and lemon to give it a little more flavor, and I think next time I will throw in some grape tomatoes!Blog Paleo Whole30 40 Clove Garlic Lemon Chicken-1Ingredients

  • chicken breasts  (I used boneless and skinless, although you could use bone in!)
  • 40 garlic cloves, peeled (I bought pre-peeled cloves from Costco, and yes, I counted them :))
  • One large yellow onion cut into 1 inch pieces.
  • 2 lemons cut into 1/4 inch slices and quartered.
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • sea salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste (I did about 20 grinds for the pepper and 10 for the sea salt)
  • Garnish with fresh basil (mainly because I have a basil plant that I’ve managed to keep alive! :))

 

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Put chicken breasts, garlic, and lemons in a big bowl.  Pour olive oil over the entire mixture, salt and pepper to taste and toss until everything is evenly coated.
  • Pour into 9×13 pan and cover pan with aluminum foil.
  • Bake for covered for 30 minutes.
  • Uncover and cook for 15 minutes uncovered or until chicken is cooked all the way through.
    (I used really large chicken breasts and did them for an extra 10 minutes.)
  • I served it over quinoa, but it would be fine all by itself with a salad or with some crusty artisan bread that you could smear the garlic on YUM!!!  (Not Paleo or Whole 30 if you do this :))
