+1, but I have no recipe for it (no fan of cloves).

I like the idea of a 40 clove of garlic dish, but I am not sure if others around me would feel the same.
Here's Ina's recipe. It uses two chickens, hence the 40 cloves. Chicken with Forty Cloves of Garlic Recipe : Ina Garten : Food Network

The recipe I used back in the '70s and '80s, from The Nouvelle Cuisine of Jean and Pierre Troisgros, uses 15 cloves for one chicken. It's wonderful, and not a lot of work IIRC. No one around you would mind; they would simply feel compelled to eat it, too.

I was thinking that might be where the recipe originated. It brought to mind either a tandori style roasted chicken, or more of a creamy, almost halushki-style casserole. Not sure which one, but both brought me back to thinking of 40 clove chicken as a base.

When I first saw this thread, I thought you were talking about the board game Strictly Pittsburgh from the late 1970s. We used to play that all the time as kids.

No, but I'll go ask my mother. Seriously. She's a food scientist. And has a collection of those church cookbooks & other fundraiser cookbooks that have recipes from local people.

No luck. Something like Authentic Hungarian Chicken Paprikas or Hungarian Chicken and Rice is all we can come up with.

I grew up in a country where we have lots of Hungarians and i have friends and relatives with this etnicity, so I know their cuisine quite well. I think you are talking about goulash. I also think that she might have put few cloves in it but this is not the norm. I suggest you go to the Hungarian restaurant in Homestead on the first weekend of the month and ask the Hungarian chef in person, but that's my take on it. I do have a Hungarian cook book. Hungarian cooking has ressembles more German/Austrian one. has NOTHING to do with Asian or Ina's chicken with 40 garlics.

Here, maybe it's German? This has cloves, anise, and honey. No tomatoes.

Chicken with Schokoladen sauce




Chicken with Schokoladen Sauce
Serves 2
Ingredients:
2 medium size chicken breasts
1 Cup Onions, finely chopped
3 Tablespoons Olive oil or butter (I love to use butter in sauces as I like the natural taste of it)[/LEFT]
[LEFT]Spice Mix:
1 teaspoon star anise
1 / 4 teaspoons cloves
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 Teaspoon crushed lavender (an immune booster) optional
1 teaspoon salt1 Tablespoon cocoa
1 Tablespoon sugar or honey
2 Tablespoons tomato puree
1 Tablespoon Hungarian sweet paprika powder
2 Cups Chicken stock or water with bouillon
garnish : 1 /2 cup sour cream and some chopped parsley

1 recipe of Geschabt Spätzle (http://www.kitchenproject.com/Spaetzle/Handgeschabt/index.htm - broken link)
Directions:
I simmer the 2 Chicken Breasts in water with a few onions and a bay leaf for 1 hour.
Reserve 2 cups of the stock for the sauce.
I shred the chicken by dragging a fork through the chicken breast with the grain and gently "pull" the meat so that you get the shredded effect. You don't have to shred the meat you can just serve the chicken breast whole.
Once you do this though I think you will agree it is a lovely way to eat Chicken.

Chop the onions finely, and then fry until golden brown.
Add all the spices and mix quickly, in order not to burn them as then you could end up with a bitter taste,
Add the cocoa and the tomato puree and stir it to a good pasty consistency, and quickly add the water and bring all the boil.
As soon as it bubbles, turn the heat down and just let it cook on a small flame with small bubbles. You
could add a little brandy or sherry or red wine, depending on your taste.
