    Sandi (From CA)'s Note:

    My husband brought his variation of this dish from the Netherlands and while I admit to loving garlic, I was a bit hesitant (before I tried it) about loving so MUCH garlic. As many of you know and I soon found out, the sharpness of raw garlic softens considerably into a sweet, creamy loveliness that can't be beat. I started eating this dish with a tiny smidgen of garlic with each bite of chicken and I've since graduated to about 1 clove per bite. Make sure everyone you plan to meet in the next three days also eats it or you could be jailed for assault with a deadly breath.

      This chicken was to die for. I added small red potatoes after the first 20 minutes of cooking and they came out perfect. Also, served with steamed green beans ..... I mashed a couple of the cooked garlic cloves and added into the green beans once the chicken was fully cooked. Delicious dinner. I think I will make 2 chickens next time so that there will be leftovers for lunch. Thanks!

      I made this's just like French Chicken with 40 cloves of garlic, but with a bit more attitude!! Must be the addition of the sugar & the Herbes de Provence. Anyway, it was a great recipe - the only thing I changed, was to put some fresh thyme, a whole lemon AND some of the garlic into the chicken, it worked really well. DH and I spread the garlic on toasted french bread today, as we couldn't eat them all last night! So, it was two meals in one.

      Sandi! This sounds like such a good recipe that I had to order some "herbes de provence" from Penzeys. I'll try it and rate it because your directions state to "steer clear" of the vulnerable. Keep up the good work!
