I actually made this chicken two nights in a row. The first night, I only made one piece to add to our fettuccine alfredo. It came out of the oven, and after it had cooled a bit I was shredding it and popped a piece into my mouth (like ya do) and was stricken with delicious. I gave the Wookie a piece to try and it was unanimous that we were having it again the next night with sides so we could revel in its awesomemess.
This, shockingly, is the only thing I used. I'd have chosen an option made with sea salt if I'd had it, but this was all I had on hand and I didn't feel like mincing fresh garlic and mixing it with sea salt. I had figured, since I was putting it into pasta, that I'd keep it simple.
Simple can be good.
Simple can be very, very good.
Pull open the skin of the chicken and pour some seasoning in. Not just a little bit. Salt that shit like you're preserving it in medieval times.
Push the skin back down and arrange (or cram, if you're using a tiny dish) it in a baking dish with about 1/4 cup of water at the bottom. Some of the garlic salt will escape and get outside the skin. no biggie.
Cook on 350 for an hour and...
NOM! It doesn't show in the picture well, but the garlic salt causes the skin to get all hard and crispy. When you peel the skin off, the chicken inside is moist and garlicky and salty and...and now I'm hungry.
