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

  1. Preheat oven to 375. Arrange chicken in a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle garlic cloves and celery over top.
  2. Combine wine, olive oil, lemon juice, parsley, basil, salt, pepper and hot pepper. Pour over chicken. Sprinkle with lemon rind.

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
