Creamy Garlic Chicken

There is something comforting and luscious about a creamy garlic sauce. The pleasing aroma hits you before you even take a bite, and you know you are in for a very good time.

We've used a whole head of purple garlic in this creamy garlic chicken and the garlic goes soft and sweet and oozy and you will love it!

Creamy Garlic Chicken

4 chicken legs (Maryland)
½ cup white flour
1 tablespoon oil
2 tablespoon butter
1 cup chicken stock
1 whole head of garlic, cloves peeled  
juice of half a lemon
salt and pepper
½ cup cooking cream (or ¾ cup normal runny cream)   

Preheat oven to 180 degrees fan bake.

On a plate, place flour and season well with salt and pepper, then mix to combine. Now take your chicken legs and dredge them in the flour to coat.

Place a casserole dish on a medium heat and place 1 tablespoon of oil and 1 tablespoon of butter into the pan.

Once the pan is hot, add your chicken and sauté for 4-5 minutes on each side until golden. Take the chicken out of the pan and set aside.

Reduce the heat to low and add the last 1 tablespoon of butter to the pan. Once melted, add your garlic cloves. Stir often, cook for 3-4 minutes until light brown.

Add the chicken stock, and lemon juice and let the liquid bubble away for a few minutes.

Add the cream and the chicken back into the pan. Bring up to the boil and transfer to the oven to finish cooking the chicken for around 20 minutes or when juices run clear. Taste the sauce and adjust seasoning if needed.

Finish with chopped parsley and serve with a green salad and mashed potato.


Is there anything more delicious than the fragrant aroma of freshly diced garlic being sauteed in butter, filling the room? A pile of field mushrooms and thyme waiting to be tossed into the pan and covered in this glorious goodness….

Our NZ purple garlic will be your secret culinary weapon. Giving your dishes an added oomph, you’ll find it hard to stop yourself reaching for that third (or fourth) piece of homemade garlic bread.

Fantastic flavour with good, relatively equal sized cloves. Can also be stored and planted out in May or June.
