I stumbled across this recipe somewhere online last year and bookmarked it; I liked the one-pot family meal aspect as well as the variation on a 40-clove chicken. It’s simple; it’s just a whole chicken and rice, cooked together slowly in a pot. You can click here for the recipe for Happy Chicken with Loads of Cloves (Roast Chicken and Garlic) courtesy The Garlic Farm on the Isle of Wight. The chicken was incredibly moist, as you’d expect, and it wasn’t really garlicky at all; in fact, I actually felt like the dish needed a little more seasoning. I would make it again with a bunch of chopped spinach and some white pepper, paprika, and chili flakes.

It’s supposed to serve 4, but we had another entire meal of leftovers. Maybe we just weren’t that hungry? In my mind, it easily would serve 6 – 8 if you have a large chicken and divide it just right.
