Chicken and potatoes are baked in butter with 24 cloves of garlic. Add a little maple syrup at the end for sweetness. Don't worry, the garlic cooks down to a mellow, soft texture that's simply delicious spread over the chicken! Serve with a green salad, broccoli or asparagus.
Enjoyed by all, think we'll try breast meat next time. Thanks for sharing. - 23 Feb 2017
I used drums only, as that is what I had on hand. It was so simple to throw together. I actually forgot the final step of the syrup but we loved it as it was. We are garlic lovers so this was great. Oh, I didn't have fresh cloves so I used jarred minced garlic. We didn't get to spread the garlic over the chicken but it baked into the drums and then covered the potatoes!! YUMMY!! - 24 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was delicious and so easy! Thanks for sharing. I'm going to add a little more detail. I had a 4 pack of chicken thighs I wanted to use, so that's what I used instead what it called for. I only had a small square brownie type pan, so I used that instead of a roasting pan. I used one whole garlic cluster, separated and peeled, about 14 cloves or so. I had to bake it 20 extra minutes to get the thermometer to 165. I don't think it needed all that garlic, not that it hurt it at all, but you really only got the garlic taste by smooshing the cloves onto the chicken at the end, and each piece used about 2 cloves. It turned out great and the potatoes were to die for! I didn't have to add any salt once to them on my plate (which is unusual for me) and they were so buttery! I will be adding this dish to my regular rotation. - 08 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
