chicken with 40 cloves of garlic
!!the roasted chicken version is good,fair enough,but,for the real garlic hit:joint your chicken & put it in a pot with 40(or more)cloves of garlic,chopped parsley,chopped celery stick,loads of ground black pepper,salt to taste & then pour in a few big glugs of evoo,mix it all up with your hands so everything is coated with everything else,seal the pot with foil,put the lid back on,in the oven for an hour or so...done!!.when you peel back the foil the smell is mind blowing,the chicken is outrageous & you mash the garlic cloves onto crusty bread to eat with the chicken
now that's what you call chicken with garlic imho!!
ps forgot to mention i skin the chicken joints first so that the garlic really gets into the meat.sealing the pot with foil turns the pot into a kinda pressure cooker so watch your hands & face when you peel back the foil!!!
