Why I Love This Recipe

One of Nigella Lawson's dishes that I have committed to memory.

Ingredients You'll Need

8 pieces of chicken
4 tbl spoons of olive oil
one head of garlic separate cloves bu leave skins on
2 lemons cut in eighths
1/2 cup of white wine
Fresh Thyme
Salt & Pepper


Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Place chicken in a roasting pan.

Add all ingredients and mix by hand.

Make sure chicken is placed skin side up when cooking.

I like to add various other dry herbs and spices for extra flavor.

Roast covered at 300 degrees for two hours. Remove cover and roast for 30-40 minutes at 400 degrees.

Baste with pan juice periodically.

Serve out of the pan.

The garlic will slide right out of the skin.

I like to spread it on my chicken before eating.
