Garlic Chicken

Garlicky Herb Air Fried Chicken Drumsticks and Thighs

In the spirit of Halloween, we decided to create a garlicky dish. This recipe is keto-friendly and can be done in an air fryer. Garlic is not only good for keeping the vampires away.

Garlic had many nutritional benefits and has very few calories. Magnesium, vitamin B6, vitamin C, Selenium, fiber, calcium, copper, potassium, phosphorus, iron, and vitamin B1 are all present in one clove of garlic. Consumption has been recommended to individuals who have high blood pressure, high cholesterol and those who are at risk of heart disease.

Still not convinced? Garlic is versatile and delicious! 30 miles south of Campbell, there is the city of Gilroy. As the garlic capital of the world, every year Gilroy celebrates this vegetable through their Garlic Festival. We love going down there every year to get our garlic fix down at Gourmet Alley.

Here at the Olive Bar, we are garlic lovers. If you haven’t tried our other garlic recipes (Olive Oil and Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Roasted Garlic Olive Oil Pesto Focaccia Bread)
