40 Cloves of Garlic and Chicken

There’s nothing fancy about this recipe.  You do need patience for it though.  While it is a very simple recipes, you need the patience for peeling all that garlic, then to wait one and a half hours for the chicken to cook.  It is worth it though.  The flavors are amazing and the chicken so tender that it melts in your mouth.  Enjoy!
