20 Cloves of Garlic Roast Chicken
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 1-1/4 hrs. + standing
I notice many reviews mention this lacking in garlic flavor. I searched "chicken with lots of garlic" and it turned out there are lots of hits for Chicken with 40 cloves of garlic! It seems that the author of this recipe was not so fond of garlic or is trying to save on it. I will try a recipe with the 40 cloves,thank you! ;)
I have to agree with those who didn't think the garlic came through enough, although mine did soften. I'd have to say this recipe did not pan out. I have other simple roast chicken recipes that are better.
This is a no fail recipe. My husband is not a big chicken fan, but he loves this.

My family LOVES garlic so this is a wonderful way to add it to the chicken. Not to mention it is soooo juicy!

It's okay. I've had better. On the plus side, now I have half a chicken for pizza on friday! :)
We were disappointed with this. The chicken meat, although moist, was not infused with garlic flavor and the garlic did not mellow and mush like roast garlic (in the head). We used orange wedges instead of lemon and left out the thyme because we don't like thyme. I don't think the orange or the cavity garlic cloves did anything for the chicken either. The skin on this bird was not crisp, which is one of the things I look forward to with roast chicken. We had high expectations, but none of them were met.
