Moist Garlic Chicken

One of our families go to meals is Moist Garlic Chicken recipe from the 2000 Taste Of Home Annual Recipe book. We love to pair it up with some type of potato and a veggie. This Thanksgiving we opted to skip the full blown meal and served Moist Garlic Chicken with au gratin potatoes, glazed carrots, and stuffing.

That’s it! No, I’m serious. That’s it. Serve it with your favorite side dishes. You can substitute chicken tenders (maybe 10-12 of them) but they cook faster so keep an eye on them. I usually double this recipe because they also reheat fantastically and make an excellent left over snack the next day.
