I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Rustic Garlic Chicken with Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Not pretty but pretty tasty! 

2 tbsps vegetable oil
4 chicken legs, split
salt and pepper to taste
20 garlic cloves
2 tbsps flour
1 3/4 cups chicken broth
1 tsp fresh chopped rosemary
1/2 tsp dry sage
1 tbsp butter
4 potatoes, quartered
butter and milk for mashed potatoes

In a Dutch oven heat vegetable oil to medium high. Dry the chicken pieces with paper toweling, salt and pepper them then lightly brown in oil about 8 minutes. Remove to a plate. Keep some fat in the pan but discard the excess.

On medium heat add the garlic and cook just until golden, about 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle flour over the garlic and add 1 cup broth. Stir together then return the chicken to the pan.

Cover and bake in a 400°F oven for 20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165°F.

While chicken bakes boil the potatoes. 
Once the chicken is cooked remove 1/2 the garlic and set aside. Now with the Dutch oven on medium high heat stir in the remaining broth, rosemary, sage, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat and add the butter.

Mash the potatoes and add some butter and milk then mash in the reserved garlic cloves.
Serves 4
