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 yesterday.........it'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!
Delicious hot but if you can manage some leftovers, it is great too. I'm making it for my Halloween party! Thanks for posting!
