Weeknight 40 Clove Chicken

You’re going to want to add this to your repertoire. Especially to your meal prepping list and weeknight collection. Inspired by Alton Brown’s creation that uses an entire chicken, this version is mindless and on the table in 25.

Not to mention, the garlic.
Garlic is my jam, literally. I love to roast a bulb or two and spread those creamy little pockets onto fresh toasted French bread and top it with fresh cracked pepper. Talk about a guilty pleasure.

40 clove chicken checks all of the boxes. It’s perfect for a weeknight dinner, makes me feel fancy with the gooey roasted garlic, and 100% really food. Perfectly topped on a bed of arugula, alongside squash or roasted vegetables, this chicken is crave worthy.

  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
