Slow-Roasted Garlic and Lemon Chicken

This lovely chicken recipe is a doddle to make and gorgeous to eat!

8 – 10 chicken pieces
1 head garlic, separated but unpeeled
2 lemons, cut into eighths
small handful fresh thyme, most leaves removed, but a few left intact to serve
3 tbs. olive oil
10 tbs. white wine or vermouth
black pepper

Heat the oven to 300°F. Put the chicken in a roasting pan along with the garlic, lemons and the thyme leaves. Pour in the olive oil, then mix everything together with your hands. Sprinkle over the wine and grind in the pepper.

Cover tightly with foil and roast for 2 hours. Turn the heat up to  400°F, remove the foil and roast for 30-45 more minutes or until the skin is browned and the lemons are caramelized. Toss over the remaining thyme sprigs and serve.

Serves 4 – 6
