Stovetop Garlic Chicken Recipe
Pat chicken dry with paper towels then sprinkle with salt.
Heat a large frying pan over medium. Add oil, then 3 of the chicken breasts, skin-side down. Cook until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Turn and cook another 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate, then repeat with remaining chicken.
Return chicken and any juices to the pan. Stir in garlic cloves, thyme, bay leaves and pepper. Reduce heat to medium, cover and simmer until an instant-read thermometer inserted into centre of chicken reads 165°F, about 25 minutes.
Transfer chicken and half of the garlic to a platter and cover with foil. Remove remaining garlic to a cutting board.
Pour broth into skillet. Increase heat to high, bring to a boil and scape any browned bits from bottom of pan.
Add water, return to a boil and reduce to 1 cup, 5 to 10 minutes.
Mash garlic on cutting board, then whisk into sauce. Remove bay leaves, then serve sauce with chicken.
