40 cloves of garlic and shallots may sound a little overwhelming, but when cooked, they turned deliciously mild and sweet. If you have no time to peel the garlic and shallots, you can always buy pre-peeled ones to save time.

This chicken stew is the type of dish I like to cook on an idle weekend, since I get to cook a huge batch with possibly leftovers for risotto the next day. I was inspired to make this after seeing pigpig’s gorgeous chicken in shallots and garlic photos, however I bake my chicken stew in an oven instead of cooking it on the stove top (as I always do for my stews) – in this way, I don’t have to watch the stove. If you do not have an oven, you can simmer the stew over the stove top for about an hour, or until the chicken meat is so tender that it falls off the bones easily.

  1. A delicious meal! Really comforting even by looking at it!

  2. What is bay leaf? Where can I buy it in Spore?

    • 月桂葉 (Bay Leaves) – I get those bottled ones (McCormick or house brands) from bigger supermarkets.

  3. Looks very scrumptious! What do you mean “an” idle weekend? ;p for me, every weekend should be idle…hahaha…and this looks like the perfect “idle” meal…at least for me. Will keep this recipe for fall/winter, probably. I am already thinking the peeling of 40 garlic and shallots is not going to keep me idle. :O

  4. Looks delicious! Thks for sharing!
    Do you think it’s possible to use chicken breast instead of leg/thigh?

  5. My kind of dinner for sure! So easy and it’s one pot too. Loving the flavours of shallots in this.

  6. 40 garlic and shallots! that is v bold cooking!
