This is a simple yet delicious meal and one of my favorites. A cast iron skillet is my preference, however, it works well in any oven-safe pan. I like to add root vegetables to the pan, including carrots and potatoes, seven ingredients, 1 1/2 hours later, dinner is served.

40 Cloves Chicken


1 whole chicken (broiler/fryer) cut into 8 pieces OR any combination of pieces you enjoy

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil

10 sprigs fresh thyme

40 peeled cloves garlic

20 cipollini onions

Salt and pepper


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Toss with a two tablespoons olive oil and brown on both sides in a wide fry pan or skillet over high heat. Remove from heat, add oil, thyme, cipollini onions and garlic cloves. Cover and bake for 1 1/2 hours.

3. Remove chicken from the oven, let rest for 5 to 10 minutes, carve, and serve.
