Garlic Stuffed Roasted Chicken
Chicken For Garlic Lovers
For anyone who likes garlic, this chicken recipe is for you. The thing I like most about this chicken is that you can use as much garlic or as little as you want. As I always say, "The more garlic the better."
All you will need to make this recipe is one whole roasting chicken, fresh garlic cloves, and fresh ground pepper.
Tips on how to easily peel a garlic clove
Break away the cloves from the garlic bulb. Hold both ends the clove between your thumb and fore finger. Give it a twist. You should find that the skin is then easily peeled off.
Using a garlic peeler is another method that works quite well. Simply put the clove in the peeler and roll on the counter top. This breaks the skin away from the clove.
Best Garlic Tools
1 Whole Roasting Chicken
12 - 15 cloves of garlic peeled
Fresh ground pepper
Preparing and roasting the chicken
Preheat oven to 325°F.
Wash the chicken under cold water and pat dry.
Peel and slice the garlic cloves into 3-4 slices depending on how large the actual cloves are.
Slightly and gently lift the skin of the chicken and insert the garlic cloves throughout the chicken where you can lift the skin. We really enjoy the taste of garlic so I tend to use quite a bit. Don't be afraid to use too much as one can never use too much garlic.
Add fresh ground pepper to the cavity of the chicken and any leftover cloves that were not placed under the skin.
In a roasting pan lay several stocks of celery in the bottom of the pan. Using celery will make clean up a lot easier. Add a cup of water and place the chicken on top of the celery. Add more fresh ground pepper to the top of the chicken.
Place in oven for half an hour - forty-five minutes. At this time I usually baste the chicken with the drippings in the bottom of the pan, and then again once more before it is cooked. Continue cooking until the internal temperature of the chicken has reached 160°-170°. Remove from oven and place on a cutting board or platter. Tent with foil for ten minutes before carving.
