Roasted Chicken with Caramelized Onions

Roasted chicken smeared with roasted garlic and served with golden, sweet onions. So good. You can roast the garlic and caramelize the onions ahead to make the cooking and prep time more manageable.

    This is soo good! The Beau especially loved the carmelized onions (he was putting them on everything else with the meal!), he'll be asking me to make those on their own again. The chicken smeared with garlic was wonderful, the garlic pre-cooked in the milk made it mild so The Beau didn't even notice that it was garlic smeared over the top of his chicken (he's not a garlic lover, as I am). I did all steps in the oven, broiling the chicken instead of browning on the stove top and roasting the garlic at the same time as the chicken. Thanks for a great recipe, sugarpea!
