6 Large garlic Heads
3 1/2 Pounds chicken
1 teaspoon salt
3 Ounces unsalted butter
1/2 Tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon

Preparation / Directions:

Instructions: Preheat the oven to 145 degrees C. Separate the cloves of garlic and peel but leave whole. Season the inside of the chicken with salt and pack in as many cloves of garlic as will fit. Smear about half the butter over the opening and any garlic peaking out. Season the chicken with more salt and smear the remaining butter over the breast and legs. Place in a roasting tin. Roast for 3-1/2- to 4-1/2- hours, basting occasionally with the juices. When the cloves of garlic inside are very tender baste again and sprinkle with tarragon or thyme. Raise the oven to 200 degrees. C and cook for 10-20 minutes until richly browned. Serve hot with the pan juices, scooping out a generous spoonful of garlic for each person.
