It's thought that garlic has properties to fight cancer, cholesterol and heart disease. Given the amount of garlic in this recipe, this is just about the healthiest dish you can eat!
that when garlic is cooked in the oven for a lengthy period of 45 minutes or more, it loses its characteristic bite and strong odour and adds a very mellow flavour to whatever it has been cooked with?
Fabulous taste - like a gormet restaurant meal! - 25 Apr 2009
Used different ingredients. This is such a wonderful recipe! To serve just myself and my husband, I used 2 whole skinless chicken breasts, and 12 cloves of garlic. Instead of celery I used baby eggplant strips, and I feel the addition of about a thumbsworth of fresh ginger to the stock gives it another level of flavour. I served the baked chicken breasts on a bed of cheese and herb mashed potato. Just fantastic! - 21 Apr 2009
