Prepare the Roasted Garlic Cream recipe. (see below) Grill the chicken or roast the breasts and dice them into bite sized pieces.
Roast Garlic Cream:Place the garlic in a saucepan and cover with olive oil. Heat to medium high and cook for 10-20 minutes until the garlic is golden brown, Do Not burn! Remove from heat and strain the olive oil into an airtight container to use in future recipes.
