“Make this only if you are a garlic-lover, don't worry the garlic will mellow while baking, you could reduce the garlic slightly I like to use three large heads --- the one hour baking time may need to be increased slightly as you are opening your oven door to basting the chicken every 10-15, this will allow hot air to escape --- plan ahead the chicken needs to be refrigerated for 1 hour, but no more than that as the lemon will start to "cook" the chicken --- you may also add in a sliced onion.”
