Here's a simple way to turn roast chicken into a special dish: Give it a French twist. Instead of making your standard roast-chicken recipe, why not try this iconic Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic. (Yes, 40 cloves. Really!) The super-short ingredient list will give you an idea of how easy it is to make. The chicken browns beautifully and the mingling juices and the butter mellow the garlic (we like to roast it in a cast-iron skillet), making a truly impressive dish that takes almost no effort at all.
