This is excellent! So easy to do and the garlic really wasn't that over-powering and the chicken was moist and tender. I boiled the left over carcass and made the most wonderful chicken rice soup. Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag.
Wonderful flavored, moist chicken - When I took the foil off I was surprised to see so much juice, there was approximately two cups that made the most wonderful gravy.I Put the hen back in the oven uncovered for 1/2 hour and it turned golden. Easy, definate do again recipe.ThanksDeb#264582 for posting Made again for Christmas dinner dec. 09 This is one of the best roast chicken recipes ever. The bird is so moist and tasty
So moist and such great flavor! This recipe was very easy to make ~ the only thing I did differently was to roast without covering (just personal preference). I used the Italian seasoning as suggested in the intro. My garlic cloves were HUGE so I halved them to make 20 and putting some under the skin worked wonderfully to season up the meat. Since I roast chicken often and am always looking for great recipes, this will become a regular around here. Thanks for posting!
This was very easy and very good. The chicken was moist and flavorful. I will use the carcass to make stock and the leftover chicken for a pot pie. My husband and I love garlic - this is a do over!
