Serves 4 – 6
All the classic traditional flavours that really work together are used in this recipe. Best cooked in a big oven pan, in two stages, first the seasoned chicken, garlic and lemon, then after 45 minutes add the rosemary, oiled onion wedges and olives. Return to the oven for a final 30 – 35 minutes. The garlic cloves are delicious squeezed out of the skins and spread on bread.
