Roast chicken

CHICKEN WITH FORTY CLOVES of garlic: one of the first recipes we learned from Julia Child, back in the 1960s. Forty years ago.

Lindsey put the chicken in a Pyrex baking dish, surrounded it with potatoes cut into cubes a big inch across, tossed in a number of cloves of garlic, unpeeled, and roasted it all until done. There's not much more needs to be done. Afterward, a tossed salad.
