Found in the Toronto TV Guide as part of the Celebrity Chef series. Don't know who the chef is as their Web site is no longer. Don't expect the skin to be crisp if you leave it on but it is tasty.

We really enjoyed this chicken but the real star was the garlic sauce! The combination of the bird and the sauce made for a very rich but o-so delicious meal. The sauce would be great over pasta, veggies or for a soup base. Thanks.

Made this for dinner tonight. We enjoyed this. The only change I made was that I thought I had B/S chicken breasts, but they were thighs. I only used 9 cloves of garlic (they were huge) but still very strong flavor. Thanks for posting. I will definitely make again.

This is wonderful! My husband thinks that this is the best gravy ever! It's simple, smells great while cooking, and tastes great. Can't ask for more than that.
