This Baked Garlic Chicken is crispy and flavorful on the outside yet tender and juicy on the inside. Tastes great sliced over pastas or salads!
This is another recipe that was originally posted in 2008 but wasn’t getting the attention it deserved. Sometimes our older recipes are our very favorites– but they tend to get pushed in our archives and never discovered by our readers! This is one of those recipes. We had a chicken dish very similar to this when we were growing up, over the years it has evolved into the perfect baked chicken recipe. It is finally to the point where there are no more changes necessary. It is perfect how it is.
We really make this garlic chicken recipe quite often (which is why it was in desperate need of being bumped up to the top so our readers could see it and enjoy it as often as we do). It always comes out moist and tender, never dry. It is nice and crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside (chicken perfection in my opinion…) It even tastes great sliced up and served cold over salad — sometimes I will make extra just so I can have leftovers for salad the next day. This chicken is also REALLY good when served with pasta. I love it both with tomato-based sauces (like Chicken Parmesan) or pasta with alfredo sauce. It is so versatile and can really be served with anything! Try it with any of our potato side dishes as well (click here).

Bake for 15 min on each side or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.
