Quick 40-Clove Chicken

This is from the newspaper in the late 80s.  The garlic becomes soft and mild and delicious.
6-8 skinless chicken breast halves (or lots of chicken tenders)
4-6 Tbsp olive oil                     
salt and pepper                         
20-40 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced if desired
½ C chopped parsley
Preheat oven to 400°.  In a 13 x 9” baking dish, arrange chicken breasts in a single layer.  Drizzle with olive oil.  Turn chicken pieces to coat evenly.  Season with salt and pepper.  Scatter garlic cloves over chicken. 

Cover and bake for 20 minutes.  Sprinkle with parsley and bake uncovered 10 more minutes.                            Serves 6
