Chicken wrapped in greaseproof paper to trap all the wonderful juices - keeps beautifully moist!
Something else. Instead of slicing the garlic I used a paring knife to poke holes in the breast and inserted the whole garlic cloves right in. There was a nice garlic flavour throughout the chicken. I opened up the parchment during the last 30 minutes so the chicken could brown. - 07 Aug 2008
Something else. Excellent recipe. I baked it in a roasting bag and also chopped the garlic and thyme, added it to butter, and rubbed down the chicken with it. The juices in the bottom of the bag make an excellent gravy. - 07 Aug 2008
Was a bit dubious reading the recipe and how simple it sounded, am 37 and cook lots, moistest, yummiest roast chicken I've ever made or tasted. Thanks for this great recipe!! - 09 Oct 2011
