Garlic-Roasted Chicken

This recipe comes from the Food Network magazine (my new favorite mag!) and is featured as a quick week-night recipe. I have found that a lot of quick week-night recipes aren't all that great, but this one is absolutely delicious! I am a huge garlic lover, so any recipe that takes whole garlic cloves, roasts them and spreads them on bread is a keeper for me. Plus it was so easy to prepare, and believe me, when you've got a 2 month old baby to take care of, quick and easy is the only way to do dinner these days!
I served it with Cauliflower Gratin that I will post next (another delicious quick week-night recipe).
Garlic-Roasted Chicken
from Food Network Magazine
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 skin-on, boneless chicken breasts (about 11/2 pounds) (I could only find bone-in)
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
2 heads garlic
4 sprigs fresh rosemary
4 slices sourdough bread, grilled or toasted
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Heat the olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and cook, skin-side down, until browned, about 5 minutes.

Separate the heads of garlic into cloves but do not peel. Flip the chicken; add the garlic and rosemary to the skillet and transfer to the oven. Roast until the chicken is cooked through but still moist, 15 to 20 more minutes.

Place the bread on a platter and top each slice with a chicken breast. Add the vinegar to the skillet and scrape up any browned bits with a wooden spoon. Add 3 tablespoons water and simmer until the sauce thickens slightly, about 2 minutes. Pour the sauce and garlic over the chicken and bread.
