Upside-Down Garlic Chicken

Categories: Chicken/Poultry
Contributed by: NJMom (Barbara)

I have made this several times and it is very easy.



  • one whole chicken
  • one bulb garlic (whole bulb, not just one clove)
  • cinnamon


Sprinkle inside of chicken with cinnamon. Cut top & bottom off garlic bulb and put inside chicken. Place chicken breast side down in baking dish. Bake at 350 for 20 min. per pound. The breasts are very juicy and you get the bonus of being able to eat the garlic (if you like)!

I have also put a little water in the pan so the drippings don't burn and I baste the chicken with pan juice a few times during cooking.
