    Helping Hands's Note:

    This recipe is fabulous - perfectly roasted whole chicken, with roasted garlic to squeeze right onto the chicken (if you prefer), and crusty french bread, with squeezed garlic. Too-die-for! If you so choose, you can actually skip eating the roasted garlic (unless you are a true garlic-lover, and can't resist :-). Simply cooking the chicken with the garlic in the pan adds incredible flavor to the chicken!. I also sometimes throw in some quartered red potatoes to the pan, which creates amazing roasted garlic potatoes. If I do this, I always sprinkle the potatoes with salt, pepper, and rosemary, too, and sprinkle with olive oil, both at the start of the cooking time, and just before serving (toss well). Makes for a fabulous complete meal!

      I have made this a few times now. It is so easy and super tasty!!! I used more broth as my pan is quite large, I also basted the chicken every 10 min for the last 30 min of cooking. The garlic is divine.. I only use about 2 1/2 heads as that's all the two of us grown-ups can eat, but I don't see how the difference would change the yummy flavor of the chicken. The first time I used the leftover chicken carcass, roasted garlic, (squeezed from skin) poultry seasonings, and some s&p to make the most delicious roasted garlic stock... Thank you for this wonderful double duty recipe!

      Delish! The chicken is tender and juicy and the roasted garlic adds to it (on both the chicken and bread). You won't be disappointed.
