You will need:
1 4-5 lb. whole chicken
8-10 whole cloves garlic – or more if you like
Salt and Pepper
Wash and pat chicken dry. Rub with butter, salt and pepper.
Place garlic cloves inside cavity of chicken.
Place a couple of sliced cloves under skin of breast.
Spray or coat chicken with a thin layer of olive oil.
Sprinkle creole seasoning over chicken.
Shake soy sauce over chicken. (You decide how much.)
At some point in your preparation, place the chicken in a dutch oven. Bake in preheated oven uncovered at 425 for 1/2 hour. Reduce heat to 325, cover and cook for another 45 minutes to an hour. You can uncover and baste as you like or just leave it. Chicken will be moist and delicious. Cut pieces and serve with the whole cooked cloves of garlic from the cavity. Serve alone or with your favorite veggies. Pairs nicely with a Kendall Jackson Chardonnay. Enjoy!
