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!
