  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Wrap garlic cloves in a piece of aluminum foil.

  • Roast in the preheated oven until softened and fragrant, about 15 minutes.

  • While garlic is roasting, season chicken with onion powder, salt, and pepper.

  • Heat olive oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Add chicken and cook, turning halfway though, until browned, about 8 minutes. Add roasted garlic to the pan, mashing the cloves as you stir. Add lime juice, chicken stock, and cilantro.

  • Stir until chicken is coated with the sauce. Reduce heat to low and simmer until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 5 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
