40 Cloves in a Roast Chicken (Recipe)

  • 1 3-4 pound broiler/fryer chicken
  • 1/4 cup Country Roast Chicken Seasoning
  • 40 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 re-usable organic cotton produce bag (optional)
  • Olive oil
  • 1 large lemon, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 bunch thyme
  • 5 sprigs rosemary
  • 1/2 bunch flat-leaf parsley
1. Rub the Country Roast Chicken Seasoning under the skin of the chicken. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
2. Tie the chicken's legs together and wing tips under the back with butcher's twine.
3. Heat garlic in a microwave on low for 6 minutes.
4. In this step, work quickly. If using a bag, place garlic in and stuff it in the cavity. If not, just stuff it in.
5. Coat chicken with olive oil. Place herbs in the bottom of a roasting pan and put lemon slices on top. Put chicken breast side up on top and bake in an oven for 45 minutes at 375°F (190°C) . Turn the temperature up to 425°F (220°C) and bake for 45 more minutes or until the internal temperature in both the thigh and breast reaches 165°F (75°C) and the juices run clear. Let rest for 10 minutes and serve.
