This recipe is from 500 Greatest-Ever Chicken Recipes, edited by Valerie Ferguson, p115. "This recipe is not as alarming as it sounds. Long, slow cooking makes the garlic soft, fragrant and sweet, and the delicious flavour permeates the chicken meat." This recipe calls for a 3.5-4lb whole chicken and 4 or 5 whole garlic bulbs. "Cook's Tip: Make sure that each guest receives an equal portion of garlic. The idea is to mash the garlic into the pan juices to make an aromatic sauce."

0.5 fruit (2-1/8" dia) Lemons
4 tbsp Rosemary, Fresh

0.25 tsp Salt, Table

Recipe Directions for Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic (500 Greatest-Ever Chicken Recipes)

  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5. Place the lemon half and the rosemary sprigs in the chicken. Separate three or four of the garlic bulbs into cloves and remove the papery husks, but do not peel. Slice the top off the remaining garlic bulb.

  2. Heat the oil in a large, flameproof casserole. Add the chicken, turning it in the hot oil to coat the skin completely. Season with salt and pepper, and add all the garlic.

  3. Cover the casserole with a sheet of foil, then the lid, to seal in the steam and the flavour. Cook for 1-1 1/4 hours until the chicken juices run clear when the thickest part of the thigh is pierced with a skewer or knife.

  4. Serve the chicken with the garlic, accompanied by steamed broad beans and spring onions.
