I love garlic chicken and when I saw this recipe on allrecipes.com I knew I had to try it.
Just a few ingredients and easy to follow instructions make this a winner in my kitchen!
- 1 (4 pound) whole chicken
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 large lemon, sliced
- 6 cloves garlic, sliced
- 6 sprigs thyme
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
- Place a large sheet of parchment paper into the middle of a roasting tray. The parchment must be large enough to completely envelop the chicken. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, stuff with half of the lemon slices, and place breast side up in the middle of the parchment paper. Sprinkle garlic slices, and thyme sprigs evenly over the chicken. Lay the remaining lemon slices over the breast. Fold the parchment over the chicken forming a loose parcel.
- Bake in the preheated oven until the chicken has cooked, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. A meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of the thigh should reach 180 degrees F.
