Garlic-Roasted Honey Chicken

This roasted chicken is one I usually serve as a "treat" supper on weekends. I'll also make it sometimes for company. Everyone says they love it—there rarely are any leftovers. —Michelle Bouchard, St. Jean-Baptiste, Manitoba

    Very easy and tasty dinner. I liked that you baked the chicken, it gave it a nice crispy skin the n added the honey coating.

    Tasty and simple. I left the garlic peeled (I did take off the outer most very papery layer) in the pan with the potatoes and chicken. Did not serve with the dripping because I was out of time, but I think I would enjoy it.

    I've not made this yet, but know we will love it since we love garlic; however, I gave the recipe a Poor rating as I can't figure out why you wouldn't peel the garlic?? Surely you don't eat the papery membrane of the garlic clove? I will definitely peel the garlic!

    I just didn't get the honey in this recipe. I peeled my garlic since I couldn't understand why you wouldn't.
