    Oolala's Note:

    Sun-Sentinel, Feb. 28, 2008. It was adapted from the San Francisco Chronicle. I don't want to lose it. It was called Grandmother's Oven-Baked Chicken but I wanted to distinguish it a bit. Here's what the blurb says "In this recipe, a Pirie family heirloom, chicken is studded with garlic and slowly baked in butter until it almost falls off the bone. We find the chicken more succulent with the skin on but it works fine without. Whichever way you make it, this recipe is addictive and will fill your home with the smell of slow-baking garlic- be sure to serve the caramelized garlic pieces too. This chicken is also excellent served cold for a picnic."
