Crushed Frozen Garlic

People, you haven’t lived until you started to use flash-frozen fresh garlic. A lot of people try to make fun of me for using this product… but SORRY. I am NOT SORRY. This stuff tastes GREAT and saves me so much time in the kitchen. I cannot LIVE without it.

Rice Cooker

When I first got married, I would make rice on the stove all the time and … I would burn rice on the stove all the time. Full confession. The bottom of my pot would be a MESSSSSS.

Then my best friend at the time told me her family ONLY uses a rice cooker and it changed my LIFE. I paid around $20 and never looked back. I’m talking YEARS. I make 2 cups at a time and have leftovers for the next day. BLISS!

Onto the recipe!

Ingredients For Baked Garlic Chicken Bits

  • 1 pound of Perdue Farms Chicken Diced
  • 1 tablespoon of paprika
  • 1 tablespoon of onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cumin
  • 2 chopped garlic cloves diced (smashed if possible)
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1/4 cup of butter – cut up into squares that you will place all over the top of the chicken
  • Pinch of salt and pepper

Note about the seasoning: please use what you have on hand. I constantly mix this up. If you want to make this more Italian, then skip the cumin and replace it with parsley.

How To Make Baked Garlic Chicken

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Meanwhile grab the pan you plan on cooking your chicken in and begin to add all the ingredients except the butter.

Mix until combined. Chop your butter until you have 4-5 even squares. Top your chicken mixture.

Cook your butter garlic chicken for 25 minutes. In the end, I like to broil for another 5 minutes to give my chicken a bit of a bite, but that is optional. Enjoy!
