I know, garlic doesn't get sold by the clove.
You've got a head - minus one clove - sitting on the counter.
It looks like a seven-year-old's grin.
No, don't lose your head.
The garlic head, I mean.
We'll use more garlic in other recipes.
If there's one thing I learned from writing this blog,
it's that Italian recipes are popular.
Whether they were in Carmela Soprano's cookbook or not.
Here's a nice, simple Italian recipe.
Chicken with Garlic
2 legs and 2 breasts
salt and pepper
Brown in butter and oil. Remove.
In the same pot, cook until translucent
1/2 medium onion, chopped green
2 green peppers, seeded and chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
Remove vegetables from pot.
Add and cook until liquid is reduced
1/2 Cup dry white wine
Add, stirring to mix
2 medium tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped
Replace chicken, cover with sauce and peppers (can be stored in the fridge).
Bake, covered in 350º oven 1 hour.
Serve with pasta, and a mixed green salad with mushrooms.
