- 1 whole chicken
- 40 garlic cloves
- olive oil
- 200 ml dry white wine
- a few sprigs of fresh thyme
- pepper and salt to taste
Kitchen equipment needed
- large oven dish
- an oven
Preparation — 5 minutes
PRE-HEAT the oven to 180 degrees celsius or 350 degrees fahrenheit.
PLACE the whole chicken in the oven dish and drizzle with lots of olive oil, pepper and salt. Place the whole garlic cloves and thyme sprigs around the chicken in the oven dish. You’re right, there’s no need to peel all those garlic cloves. POUR the dry white wine inside the dish. That’s it, there’s not much prep work to do for this recipe!
Finishing the roasted chicken with 40 cloves of garlic — 1 hour
PLACE the oven dish in the oven for at least an hour, depending on your oven and size of your chicken. You can check if it’s ready if the temperature of the thickest part is at least 71 degrees celsius or 160 degrees fahrenheit.
Serve with oven roasted potatoes and a large green salad with spinach and red onion.
