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
- 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.
- Remove from heat, add oil, thyme, and garlic cloves. Cover and bake for 1 1/2 hours.
- Remove chicken from the oven, let rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
