1 Tbsp olive oil
3 lb chicken pieces
40 cloves garlic (about 3-4 heads)
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp thyme
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 cup water


Preheat oven to 350.

In large Dutch oven, heat oil. Add chicken and cook, turning, until golden. This step can be omitted. Tilt pan and spoon off all but 2 Tbsp fat. Add garlic cloves (peeled or unpeeled)and stir to coat. Sprinkle with lemon juice, thyme, salt, pepper and 1/4 cup water. Cover tightly and bake 1 1/2 hours.


This is so yummy! We usually have mashed potatoes to go along with this, and I mash the baked garlic cloves in with the potatoes. (Now these need the garlic peeled !)


You can add 2 Tbsp of butter to the olive oil used to brown the chicken.

All of the seasonings can be doubled to taste.
