Lemon and rosemary infused poussin are basted with a wine and garlic stock. Makes any occasion special. Crusty bread and a nice white wine complement this meal.

Chicken breasts topped with garlic and onions, then roasted in lemon juice and white wine. A simple, light supper when paired with a green salad.

This dish contains no less than 40 cloves of garlic. The strength of the garlic is mellowed when baked in a casserole. The resulting dish is a chicken that is moist, tender and flavoursome.

The quantity of sauce with this would easily cover another chicken breast and serve 3. Despite the quantity of garlic used I did not find this overpowered the recipe. This is based on a Weight Watcher recipe. It would work well served with potato wedges.

As far as herbs go, I think fresh thyme works best with chicken. I sometimes add four or five bulbs of green garlic (young garlic that looks like baby leeks) when it's in season and if I find it at the farmers' market.

Rather than rubbing butter over a bird before roasting, here a paste of fresh herbs and fromage frais is pushed under the skin. This keeps the roasting chicken beautifully moist as well as adding a wonderful flavour. The pan juices are used to make a simple sauce.

A family favourite! Chicken thighs and drumsticks are roasted in a pot with potatoes, lemon slices, garlic and thyme.

I have recently started cooking a whole chicken in a pot with loads of garlic, lemon and herbs. It's so easy and turns out juicy and delicious every time. More importantly, the whole family eats it! If you have chicken and garlic cloves left over, they are great to use in a quick Thai curry or chicken noddle soup the next night.
