40 cloves Garlic Chicken with Mashed Potatoes

This is a very delicious & simple chicken dish to prepare at home. Don't be turn off by the 40 cloves garlic, it will not stink your mouth after you eat it. Hee hee! The caramelized garlic add sweetness to the dish. The garlicky gravy served well with bread & rice but I am going to prepare some mashed potatoes to go with it.

I am given 12 PCS set of very pretty polywood cutlery set by Tramontina. I simply love it as the outlook of these steak knives & forks look so sleek & classic. These cutlery were made with stainless steel blades, their polywood handles are assembled with aluminium rivets. Their cutlery come with a 5 years warranty too & it is dish washer friendly too! 

I am going to use them to serve my lunch today! 
The Chicken is so tender!
