1 3-3.5 lb chicken
2 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon thyme
2 tablespoons oil
Remove neck/giblets from chicken.Â Rinse and pat dry. Slice each garlic clove in half. Make 4 slits in chicken skin to put garlic in. Season outside of bird with Adobo and thyme. Cook at 375 degrees for 80 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 175. Remove from oven and let rest for 15 minutes before cutting.
Cooks note: Use chicken carcass to make your own stock. It can be used for flavorings in other dishes-like mashed potatoes, rice, etc. You can freeze it in ice cube trays for future use.
*Adobo is available in the spice or Latin section of the grocery store and is similar to a season salt with garlic.
