"This is a recipe that I have been asked to make over and over again. Abalone, if you can get it, is considered a delicacy and very expensive. The chicken has a lovely mild flavor that people rave over. The recipe is from the cookbook The Garlic Lovers Cookbook. This recipe was entered at one of the annual Gilroy Garlic Festivals Cookouts. The prep time does not include the 48 hour marinating time"
