Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Melt the butter with the olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the Dutch oven and brown on all sides in the butter and oil, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove the chicken to a cutting board.
  3. Drain all but 2 tablespoons of liquid from the pan; stir the garlic cloves into the reserved liquid. Return the chicken to the pan; sprinkle the water, lemon juice, salt, thyme, and black pepper over the chicken; cover tightly.
  4. Bake the chicken in the preheated oven until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 90 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh should read 180 degrees F (82 degrees C). Remove the chicken from the oven, cover with a doubled sheet of aluminum foil, and allow to rest in a warm area for 10 minutes before slicing.

This is a classic French dish. You will get the same affect if you use 20 cloves of garlic, cut in half. The smaller you make garlic, the more potent it becomes.

For all the garlic I expected a lot more flavor in the chicken.

Yum! Used cut up chicken for convenience and chicken stock for the baking liquid which I then thickened at the end to make a velvety sauce to coat the chicken. This is easy, inexpensive, and very tasty!

My husband mashed the garlic from the pan up and we had instant garlic bread! Delicious recipe and VERY easy to do.

I found this similar recipe on the garlic bag. It used only olive oil, 1/4 cup. It included also, 1/2 cup white wine, 1/4 cup dry vermouth, juice of one lemon, 1 tsp of dried oregano, and minced fresh parsley. After putting all the ingredients on the chicken, place in a covered roasting pan 40 minutes on 400, then uncovered for another 30 to 35 minutes, and it was delicious. Thanks for providing this recipe, and I hope you try it with the extra ingredients.

The first time I made this, even with all the garlic, the chicken hadn't picked up much flavor. I made it a second time, rubbing the chicken with more herbs and such. Then, after it was baked, pulled out the garlic to puree together with just a touch of melted butter - to poor over everything. Amazing. And perfect to sop up with a big fluffy roll.

This recipe was very good and very easy. One of the few reliable one-pot wonders. The only difference is that I used minced garlic since my family LOVES garlic. Minced garlic is much more potent. I would have like the skin to be a bit crispy, but with the amount of liquid that's released, I would have had to taken the chicken out of the dutch oven and crisped it on a cookie sheet. Nevertheless, this was very good.

I've been making this for years. It's great and the garlic gets nice and sweet. I've also just used thighs with 20 cloves and that works great as well.
