Garlic Butter Baked Chicken is a tender, juicy dish packed with flavor. Add it to a bed of lettuce or noodles for a versatile protein source.

Pro Tips for Preparation

To prepare the most flavorful, juicy chicken, I recommend purchasing pasture raised chicken. Looking for a clean source of hormone and antibiotic free chicken is key for a source of lean protein packed with nutrients and flavor.

The ghee used also helps to keep the chicken moist. For this recipe specifically, I love using garlic infused ghee to boost the garlic flavor. Feel free to also spread the ghee over the cherry tomatoes for a mouth-watering side.

You can butterfly your chicken breasts. However, keep in mind that the garlic head does take around 35-45 minutes to get to its desired texture. If you do butterfly your chicken, I would recommend placing the garlic in a separate cooking pan.

What to Pair with the Garlic Butter Baked Chicken
