Made this recipe as written, except seasoned with a mixed blend of herbs for chicken rather than the salt & pepper. Used a roasting pan covered tightly with several layers of foil as I have nothing with a lid. Result was a tender juicy chicken & the garlic was delicious! Will make this again & again as it was enjoyed by all! Thanks for sharing your recipe.
So simple and absolutely delicious! The garlic taste is actually quite mild after roasting so don't be put off by the number of cloves. I cooked a single 1.3Kg chicken so left it in the oven for 2 1/2 hours but used the same quantity of other ingredients and it came out perfectly.
