Why I Love This Recipe

"Vampire Chicken" will keep them away from you for a lifetime!Dont be alarmed by the number of garlic cloves called for, the garlic mellows as it roasts,this dish is delicious and delicately flavored.

Ingredients You'll Need

5 ribs celery, cut into 3 x 1/4 inch strips
5 carrots, cut into 3 x 1/2 inch strips

8 chicken leg-quaters (or other pieces)
1/3 cup olive oil

queeze garlic from the husks; spread, like butter, on bread and eat along with the chicken.
