    southern chef in louisiana's Note:

    As the garlic in this dish is slowly baked with the chicken, the flavor mellows and the natural sugar in the garlic cloves caramelizes making the final product quite sweet.

      I have regular cravings for this chicken and so I have to make it every few weeks or so. I usually use chicken legs or thighs and add the juice of 1/2 a lemon to brighten up the flavor a little. I like to cook it in my heavy lidded enamelled cast iron pot.

      Don't know why but this simply didn't work for me.The only thing I did differently was to use a whole chicken rather than pieces. The chicken more or less steamed inside the covered pot and the garlic was floating in liquid, ensuring that it wouldn't carmelize. The chicken was very moist and tender, it cooked in 1 1/2 hours and browned in 10 minutes under the broiler.
