Chicken with Forty Cloves

We have a screened-in porch and after ten years, we finally gave it some love and turned it into the porch we always wanted. We even hand built a farmhouse table for it so we can gather round it for Feast and Merriment. The inaugural dinner was one I gave great thought to and finally decided on Ina Garten’s Chicken with Forty Cloves of Garlic served with Roasted Asparagus and Parmesan Risotto. It was divine- everything came together beautifully and it truly was an evening of Feast and Merriment!

I have been wanting to try this recipe for a long time and I am actually angry a myself for not trying it sooner. It’s amazing. Simply amazing. I encourage you to try this recipe because it is so, so good, but before you do, know that it is an intermediate level recipe and a bit of work, so you need to commit-but its worth it! I also recommend doubling or tripling the sauce.

Feaster’s tip: I highly recommend factoring in extra time to clean up and regroup after searing off all the chicken- it splatters, takes longer than you think and not something you want to do with company in your kitchen! Once you get past that step, you’ll be on your way!

This recipe is incredibly flavorful and truly special. It does take a good deal of effort, but I think it is worth it!
