Tender and succulent, this is fall-off-the-bone chicken, with tons of roasted garlic! This recipe can be made quicker and without too much fuss, it's suggested to purchase whole garlic cloves already peeled. They are usually found in a jar in the produce section and sometimes even packed in oil. :)
