Deliciously tender and browned roast chicken stuffed with a whole head of garlic and rubbed with an olive oil/lemon mixture. Yum!

Delicious!! It came out perfectly browned with nice, crispy skin. The meat was moist and very flavorful. I skimmed the fat off the pan juices and made a very tasty gravy. This recipe is definately a keeper!
