40 Cloves and a Chicken

June 11, 2011

Earthfare in Montgomery opened recently, and gave out a "free meal" coupon that included a whole raw chicken, organic carrots, and pre-made mashed potatoes.  We made Alton Brown's 40 Cloves and a Chicken with our free chicken.  It was delicious! Super simple, will definitely make again.  Recipe below. 



    • 4 lbs whole chickens, cut into 8 pieces
    • 1/2 cup olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 10 sprigs fresh thyme
    • 40 garlic cloves, peeled
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Toss with 2 tablespoons olive oil and brown on both sides in a wide fry pan or skillet over high heat.
  2. Remove from heat, add oil, thyme, and garlic cloves. Cover and bake for 1 1/2 hours.
  3. Remove chicken from the oven, let rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
