    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    Simply delicious recipe that I adapted from Susan Herrmann Loomis's "French Farmhouse Cookbook", and a meal on Ed's "please make again" list. I serve this with a huge green salad loaded with tomatoes and cucumbers and top it with the warm, garlicky, chicken-roasted croutons...heaven on a plate.

      Remove chicken from the baking dish, salt and pepper it to taste, and let it rest on a warm platter, breast side down (to allow juices to settle).

      Wow, I made this tonight, and it came out extremely good. Nothing was too overpowering, and it all melded together perfectly with meat falling off the bone tenderness. I couldn't find any 3 1/2 pound chickens, so I ended up getting a 6 1/2 pound one. Also, because I can't move the racks in my oven (I live in an apartment) and I think my oven cooks a bit high anyhow, I ended up turning the heat down to 375 instead and cooking for it around about 2 hours, but it was so worth it. My picky husband loved it.

      I served it just the way you suggested, Angie. I can't imagine any better way to use those tasty croutons and garlic.

      I made this for the Summer 2006 Pick A Chef Contest. I just want to say that it was VERY GOOD!!! I made one mistake and I will put it here so others don't do it. I do not like the skin on chicken so I took all of the skin off. Don't do this it turned out a bit dry. It was still VERY GOOD!! I also cooked it when it was thawed out, I don't know if it was that or that I took the skin off, but I had no juice in the bottom of my pan. So I added a can of Chicken Broth and it turned out GREAT!! I would definatly make this again!!!
