READY IN: 1hr 5mins




  • Remove all visible fat from the chicken and trim excess skin, leaving just enough to cover the pieces. Carefully lift the skin on each piece and slice 2 basil leaves under it. Replace the skin.
  • Separate the garlic bulb into individual cloves. Trim the hard end off each clove and remove the peel. Trim any bruises and discard any cloves that are soft or dark. There should be about 12 to 15 whole cloves.
  • Place the garlic in a 9"x13" baking dish. Top with the chicken.
  • Squeeze the juice from half of the lemon over the chicken. Remove the seeds from the remaining lemon half and cut into 4 pieces. Add these to the baking dish.
  • Cut the potatoes lengthwise into spears. Add to the dish. Drizzle with chicken and potatoes with the oil. Sprinkle with the pepper and paprika.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the chicken is tender. Remove the skin before eating.
