This is a popular dish that has been shared by many respectable cooks. Often, this recipe calls for the use of liquor and white wine. For our version, we keep things simple and allow the flavors of the chicken to be enhanced only by bathing in herbs (and a massive amount of garlic) for a few hours. Do not get so caught up in the tender and juicy chicken that you forget to enjoy the steamed cloves of garlic. They are a wonderful little treat in their own right.
Keeping the skin on the cloves of garlic allows them to steam while cooking. This results in the garlic infusing the chicken with flavor, while cooking for a long time without burning.
