1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into four 4-ounce pieces
1 teaspoon olive oil
12 garlic cloves, cleaned and halved
1 cup chicken broth
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
- Combine the first five ingredients in a small bowl. Rub the herb mixture into both sides of the chicken pieces.
- Heat oil in a large ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook two minutes on each side. Add the garlic and 3/4 cup of the broth. Place the pan in the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until chicken is done and the garlic cloves are soft.
- Remove the pan from the oven and transfer the chicken to a platter; keep warm. Add the remaining 1/4 cup of chicken broth to the pan and mash the garlic with a fork. Cook garlic mixture over medium heat for two minutes or until heated through; stir. Serve the garlic sauce over the chicken.
