Chicken with 30 Garlic Cloves

Hi Friends,

I'm feeling a little under the weather but I still wanted to post today.
I've been waking up with serious headaches with lots of shooting pains and my eyes are super sensitive to light. I'm not sure what's wrong with me so I'm going to take it easy. Probably has something to do with the changing temperatures outside and all the hugging and handshaking I've been doing lately.

This is my go-to recipe when I don't have much time but the boyfriend is hungry and requesting something hearty.

It tastes better then it looks and it looks pretty dam good.

The Dijon mustard and white wine gives the chicken a tangy French twist. Also, cooking garlic in it's skin makes the garlic sweet and more edible.

Let's dig in

Chicken with 30 garlic cloves 

4 chicken legs 
4 chicken thighs 
2 tbsp vegan butter like Earths Balance 
1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup shallots roughly chopped

Separate the garlic cloves but do not peel them
