Oven Baked Garlic Chicken

Oven Baked Garlic Chicken by Custom Taste
We eat a lot of chicken in our household and sometimes it can get pretty boring and tasteless, so we always like coming up with new ways to give our baked chicken a facelift. With it being garlic week and having a plethora of garlic in our kitchen, we always do actually, I decided to infuse our chicken with the garlic and bake it on a bed of veggies. It did not turn out howI though it would originally  it turned out better! The veggie flavour actually baked into the chicken giving more flavour than i was expecting and the garlic gave it a great mellow sweet flavour. Making this will definitely renew your love for chicken, and might even become a new favourite!

-We sliced our veggies into the thin strips to give the chicken more bottom coverage and so it would be easier for their flavours and liquids to cook out and get absorbed into the chicken breast. This means you won't be able to eat the veggies (well a few will be fine to eat mainly the ones right under the chicken) after cooking but it gives the chicken amazing flavour!
