Garlic Tomato Chicken


Garlic Tomato Chicken
I love garlic. Sometimes I eat it raw to my husband's despair. Garlic is a widely recognized health enhancing supplement. Garlic promotes the well-being of the heart and immune systems with antioxidant properties and helps maintain healthy blood circulation. One of garlic's most potent health benefits includes the ability to enhance the body's immune cell activity. This is popular Romanian dish called "Ostropel".
