Garlicky Baked Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Semra22

A variation on the traditional 40 Clove Chicken. The whole garlic cloves become very mild, buttery and savory. Yummy!

What a fantastic recipe! I only used one head of garlic and chunked the cloves to spread over the chicken. I used 6 deboned, skinned chicken thighs and rubbed them with the garlic before adding the garlic to the recipe. Thanks, Semra22, I will be making your delicious chicken again and again. M.Joan
