In a large pan (12”), place chicken thighs with bone and skin (dark meat is tastier). Sprinkle fancy garlic salt and pepper liberally. Olive oil in the pan, pan sauté (fry) for about 9-10 minutes on both sides of the chicken, take out set aside.
Cut up 3-4 potatoes in to quarters and do the same as you did for the chicken above with fancy garlic salt and pepper, sauté and set aside.
Then in the same olive oil (you might have to add a little more after sautéing the chicken and potatoes) and the chicken fat from cooking the chicken and potatoes, sauté the chopped garlic cloves for about 3-4 min, then add about 1-2 cups of a dry white wine, (I use pinot grigio), cook another 3-4 minutes, then place chicken thighs and potatoes back in the pan and place in the oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. It is garlicky and fabulous.
More About This Recipe
The reason you use the same oil that you cooked the chicken in is because the scrapings from the chicken add the flavor needed to the sauce that you are using for the final phase of cooking. You can choose to keep it on the stove, turn it down and cook at a lower temperate for the final 30 min, instead of putting it in the oven.
