Chicken With 40 Cloves Of Garlic Recipe

This mouthwatering recipe is the perfect fusion of tender chicken and nutty garlic. Bake it golden brown in a tasty butter sauce flavored with chicken stock, shallots, and a kick of sweet vermouth. This would be a great main course to serve with creamy mashed potatoes.

      • 1 Whole Chicken (Cut Into 8 Pieces)
      • 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
      • 1/4 Cup Dry Vermouth
      • 1 Cup Chicken Stock
      • 2 Small Shallots (Diced)
      • 1 Small Bunch Fresh Thyme
      • 40 Cloves Garlic (Peeled)
      • 1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
      • 1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Season meat with salt & pepper. In a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, heat 2 tablespoons oil and brown chicken, about 5-7 on each side. Remove from heat and stir in remaining oil, thyme, stock, shallots, vermouth, butter, & garlic. Cover and bake until a meat thermometer stuck in the middle of the thickest piece registers 165 degrees, about 1 1/2 hours.
  3. Remove from the oven and allow chicken to rest for at least 10 minutes before serving.
