    The whole cloves of garlic give it a sweet taste. Instead of rosemary, sage and thyme you can use 3 tsp "Italian Herb Seasoning by Spice Islands"

      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.

      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!
