Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic

Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic

"40 cloves of garlic! Yes, you read that right! This is a French classic recipe, a roasted chicken with 40 cloves of garlic. Seems like a lot of garlic, but believe me, this is so AMAZINGLY delicious. The classic version of this awesome recipe is truly simple, only a few ingredients, as you can imagine, the garlic builds the flavour in this recipe. The original recipe is usually done with a whole chicken and cognac. There are a few variations out there but I did my own version."

I cannot say enough good things about this Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic recipe. The sweet flavor of the roasted garlic permeates the chicken to perfection. The ingredients are so basic, and the preparation is so simple, it is hard to believe how wonderful the result is. I served it with mashed potatoes to soak up all the flavors. I also took the authors suggestion and spread some of the roasted garlic on crispy Italian was absolutely terrific.

To the inexperienced cook, this amount of garlic may be quite intimidating. But if you have ever used roasted garlic in your cooking, you know that it develops a very sweet flavor. That sharp acrid bite that the raw garlic has simply melts away. I would love this chicken dish over some mashed potatoes, or even pasta to soak up all that sweet garlicky goodness!

This recipe speaks for itself. IT IS AWESOME! SO flavorful and tasty! Honestly, the garlic is not overpowering, which always surprises me because of the 40 cloves. I like mine plated with plain brown rice so I can mix it in the sauce from the chicken. Enjoy!!!
