Skillet Barbecue Chicken

Chicken is a meat staple in our house, and on a weekly basis we’re always trying to figure out new ways to fix it.  This particular recipe was introduced this past fall, but we had it this week and I had to share just how simple it is to make.  When I made this on Monday, my good friend Ms. Santa Barbara joined us for dinner and she loved it!  I’ve also made it for others and it never fails to satisfy.  πŸ™‚

(The recipe book in the picture I use relentlessly.  The recipes are easy, fast and always taste good.)

4 (6-ounce) chicken breast halves
3 garlic cloves, minced
