Probably my favourite way with Chicken. The sweet soft flavour of the roasted garlic

converts even people who say they don't like it.

ingredients (for 2)

- 2 Chicken Legs

- 1 Lemon

- 4 Tablespoons Olive Oil

- A head of Garlic (12 cloves)

- Salt and Pepper


Divide the legs into thighs and drumsticks. Squeeze the lemons and mix the juice with the olive oil and seasonings. Marinade the legs in this for about 30 minutes.

Set the oven to 200C, 400F Gas 7.

Using a small oven proof tray or dish put the legs with their marinade into this.

Tuck the garlic cloves - unpeeled - around the chicken pieces. Roast for about ten minutes then baste with the marinade.

Roast for another ten minutes (lower the oven if they are cooking too fast). Baste again and put back for five minutes.

Cut into one of the pieces to insure they are cooked, if not put back for another 5 minutes.

Serve with the cloves of the garlic still in their skins. Squeeze the soft garlic out of its skin before eating and spread on the chicken. Eat with rice or fried potatoes.
