No-Nonsense Rhubarb Chicken

Summer has officially arrived when I have more rhubarb then I know what to do with.  And after making crumble and giving some away I thought it could be interesting to experiment with a more savory rendition.

The combination of the roasted garlic and the rhubarb will surprise you.  Never had I tried a savory rhubarb dish, but this one definitely makes me want to try some others.

This recipe is amazing! The tangy rhubarb and the touch of honey and garlic compliment it so well.  Definitely need to try this recipe tonight!
