Completely delicious recipe for moist and tender chicken. I basted the chicken a few times during the baking.


  1. Rinse chicken inside and out. Drain well and pat dry with paper towels. Place chicken on a roasting pan, tempered glass or ceramic.
  2. In a food processor or with a mortar and pestle, grind the garlic cloves and the peppercorns, making a paste. Place in a small bowl and incorporate the Madeira. Marinate, covered, in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Bring to room temperature before baking.
  3. Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  4. Pour the olive oil over the chicken. Place chicken in oven and bake 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until juices run clear. Let rest 15-20 minutes before carving.
