Recipe courtesy From Emeril's Kitchens, by Emeril Lagasse. Different way of preparing chicken and best part is that it's all done in 1 or 2 pans depending on how large of an oven proof skillet you have. The herbs and the garlic glaze are just heavenly to smell and devour. This was a huge hit in my home and even the kid enjoyed it. Prep time includes the 1 hour for roasting the garlic as this can be done ahead of time.

I am not sure about this. It was okay. I opted out of the lemon herb sauce, and I think I might have used too much garlic, which to me is like impossible, lol. I will make it again, and try it with the lemon herb sauce. It might lighten it up. So 3 stars for now. I think it was on my part though. All in all it was pretty good
