This is the easiest way that I've found to peel garlic. Place your garlic on a cutting board and lay the blade of your butcher knife (or other wide-bladed knife) flat over the garlic.
Holding the knife handle with one hand, make a fist with the other hand and give two quick, hard taps on the side of the knife blade. Be sure not to keep your fingers under the handle. Not a good idea. .
This usually causes the peel to loosen and come off very easily. It also crushes the garlic well, which is what you want for this recipe.
6-8 bones, skinless chicken breasts
20 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp. ground pepper
1 tsp. coarse sea salt
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
paprika for garnish (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degree Fahrenheit. Season chicken with sea salt and pepper. Arrange pieces in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Drizzle with oil. Scatter garlic cloves over chicken. Cover and bake for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley (and paprika if using) and bake uncovered for 10 minutes longer. Serve pan drippings over rice.
