This easy garlic butter chicken recipe is a super delicious, savory restaurant quality garlic flavored dish that families love! It is easy to make in under 15 minutes for a lot less money than a similar restaurant meal, so you’ll be able to serve a high quality meal fast without all the stress of going out to eat!
Everyone loves this garlic butter chicken, but it’s especially popular with men and teenage boys! My husband is especially crazy about garlic so this recipe is perfect for him and my teenage boys absolutely love it!
Serve with rice, pasta or potatoes. The garlic sauce that you make with the chicken makes a perfect flavoring for these items as well.
I usually serve this garlic butter chicken recipe with rice and a vegetable because it’s super easy. We often make extra rice once or twice a week and then warm it up for dinner while making a recipe like this for dinner.
I often microwave a frozen vegetable like broccoli, corn, green beans or mixed vegetables. It’s easy to warm up the vegetable and the rice while cooking the chicken and have dinner on the table in under 10 minutes.
One great way to save money on family dinner recipes like this is to stock up on the meat items when they’re on sale and freeze. If you wait until you plan to serve chicken to buy it, you will usually pay a higher price, so for the best price, keep your eyes open for specials!
I shop around for sales and when I see a deal on boneless, skinless chicken breasts, I buy a lot of them and freeze right in the store package. If you have a small family, you could re-package into smaller containers, but I prefer the easiest route possible! I rarely pay more than $1.99 for boneless, skinless chicken because I buy this way.
Here are some recipes that go well with this garlic butter chicken:
How to cook rice – OK, not a recipe, but a helpful how-to in case you need to know how to make rice.
Baked Potatoes – Here’s how to make them and suggestions for tasty toppings!
Garlic Bread – Butter some bread, sprinkle with garlic powder and salt. (French Bread is great, but any bread works if you don’t want to go to too much trouble!) Toast face down in a frying pan or set under the broiler until it browns. Watch carefully because it can quickly go from uncooked to incinerated! And be careful using the broiler!
Garlic Salad – This is a super delicious garlicky coleslaw!! Yum!! If you have never tried it, you should make it TODAY!
Garlic Cheese Biscuits – This easy garlic cheese biscuits recipe is super yummy and tastes like the garlic biscuits at Red Lobster. We love it and serve it with lots of meals. It would definitely be a nice compliment to the garlic butter chicken recipe.
