@Tuellz: Thanks for catching our mistake! We have updated the recipe, and you can see the garlic is now included in the marinade. Thanks for suggesting the garlic cloves tucked into the meat. It sounds delicious! -- RecipeLion Editors

1 tablespoon minced garlic? Well, I am not sure if I could even taste "1 tablespoon minced garlic" in this dish. Oh, wait, it doesn't matter because they did not include the garlic! Me? I'd put the garlic in with the marinade; but a lot more of it. Or maybe a bunch of cloves of garlic stuffed into slits in the meat. Now THAT would be worthy of the name "Garlic Chicken".
