Garlic heaven – A garlic, chicken, Rosemary, and mushroom dish

I would like to share a recipe that I created with you. I love making this dish for my family. It is fairly simple to create and I have been told by all those who have eaten it, that it is delicious! This is the kind of meal that you can cook any time of the year.

The ingredients are simple, affordable, obtainable, and harmonize well together to create something special.

You will find that I have utilized ways of trimming the fat in this recipe for health reasons. I also do not cook or eat much meat but I do enjoy this meal. My husband really loves this dish and I love making him happy. He actually can not wait to come home from work to eat it when he knows that I will be serving it that evening for dinner!

If you are a garlic lover, get ready to be transported to Garlic Heaven, your house will soon be swept away with an intoxicating aroma.
