Garlic Chicken:

  • 1 kg chicken breast cubes (Real Good Chicken)

  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tbsp minced garlic

  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter

  • 1 lemon, quartered (optional, for serving)

For the Gravy:

  • 1 heaping tbsp all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup chicken broth

  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter

Preparation Instructions:

  • Pat dry the chicken cubes with paper towels and place them in a bowl. Add the flour, salt, and pepper, and toss to coat the chicken evenly.

  • Heat the olive oil in a 12-inch skillet over high heat until it's very hot but not smoking. Add the coated chicken cubes in a single layer and cook for about 4-5 minutes, until a golden crust forms. Flip the chicken pieces and continue cooking for an additional 3-5 minutes.

  • In a small bowl, combine the minced garlic and chopped parsley. Add the butter to the skillet and let it melt. Then, add the garlic and parsley mixture to the skillet and sauté for 1 minute, making sure to coat the chicken evenly. Remove the chicken from the skillet, leaving the browned bits, garlic, and parsley in the pan.

  • If there's excess oil in the skillet, remove most of it, leaving about a tablespoon. Add the butter and melt it over medium heat. Sprinkle the flour into the skillet and cook for about a minute, stirring continuously.

  • Gradually pour in the chicken broth while whisking to combine. Keep stirring until all the broth has been added and the gravy has thickened to your desired consistency.

  • Serve the garlic chicken with the gravy poured over the top. Optionally, serve with lemon wedges on the side for an extra citrusy kick.

By following these steps, you'll create a flavorful garlic chicken dish with a crispy outer crust and a savoury gravy that complements the chicken perfectly. Enjoy the delicious flavours of this homemade meal!
