Warning: Don't love garlic, please turn back. This recipe is not you. It is filled with garlicky flavour and tons and tons of garlic. You don't want to go for a date or go to a face to face conversation with someone you love or someone you hate. But the one advantage i can give you is, your house will smell so amazing when you bake this. Full of GARLICKY aroma..
How could such a yummy recipe can be this simple. Yes it is too
simple, just a simple marination required. That too calls for just
blending few stuffs together. The longer you marinate the chicken the better the flavour. I usually do marination the night before and leave it to infuse overnight, then cook it the next day.
This is a garlic roast chicken recipe, but i have a gravy version of garlic chicken which i love a lot. That is a kind of indo chinese recipe. I will surely post that soon.
