This is easily one of the most requested dinners in my circle of loved ones. It's so simple and yet so flavorful. This Garlic Herb Chicken is made in 30 minutes and can pair well with most any side dish.
I know I've created something really good when my boyfriend Kyle is asking if there's more in the kitchen after the first couple bites! In addition to some pretty tasty chicken, you also get a nice gravy with it, made from the chicken juices, broth and just a little butter.Related: Weight Loss Quick Start Guide
One of the tricks I've used to make sure my chicken is always cooked just right is a Digital Instant Read Meat Thermometer. I have two different kinds. One is a little "pocket" thermometer that you can use on the stove top or the grill. I really like this one for when I need a portable option. You simply insert it into the center of the meat on an angle and in seconds you get the core temperature.
The other is an ThermoPro Large LCD Digital Meat Thermometer made for food cooking in the oven. It has a wire that goes from the meat to the little digital screen. It allows you to set an alarm when the food hits a certain temperature. For example, if I'm baking chicken, I can set the alarm to go off at 160 degrees. This way I can remove the chicken from the oven and allow it to cook the remaining 5 degrees while it rests.
People will be asking how you get your chicken to be so juicy! Who doesn't love that feeling? It's up to you whether you tell them about your secret weapon.
Give it a try on your next recipe. The thermometers are under $20 and are very much worth the investment.
Enjoy this Garlic Herb Chicken!
