3 Recipes to Increase Your Libido

Get your groove on with these sexy dishes

Three Dishes That Increase Your Libido - Braised Chicken with Forty Cloves of Garlic

End the day on a sensual note with Braised Chicken With 40 Cloves of Garlic. Garlic contains high levels of allicin, known to increase blood flow. —

Braised Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic

Serves 6

You can substitute 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves for the sprigs of fresh thyme. To save time (and avoid garlic fingers), buy the peeled whole cloves in the produce section.

3 pounds (about 8 medium) bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs, rinsed and patted dry

1 tablespoon olive oil

Salt and ground black pepper

40 peeled garlic cloves, left whole

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup dry white wine

2 cups chicken broth

6 new red potatoes, rinsed and halved

6 fresh thyme sprigs

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Heat a large (11- to 12-inch) deep sauté pan over medium-high heat. Toss chicken thighs with oil and a sprinkling of salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Add chicken, skin side down, to hot skillet. Cook until well browned, about 7 minutes. Turn and cook until they lose their raw color on second side, a minute or two longer. Return to bowl; set aside. Add garlic to skillet and sauté until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Whisk in flour, followed by wine and then broth. Return chicken to skillet, along with potatoes and thyme. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, partially covered, until chicken is cooked and potatoes are tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Stir in parsley and serve.
