Chef.Foodie's picture
Ingredients
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Broiler fryer chicken 4 Pound
  Mushrooms 1⁄4 Pound, rinsed, trimmed
  Celery pieces 6 (1 Inch Each)
  Flour 2 Tablespoon
  Cooking sherry 1 Tablespoon
  Half-and-half 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Garlic heads 2
  Black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Dill weed 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Salad oil 1⁄4 Teaspoon
Directions

GETTING READY
1) Pluck the cloves apart from the garlic head and drop them into boiling water. Let boil for 30 minutes.
2) Strain the water and set aside for basting later. Spread the cloves on a plate and allow to cool.
3) When pressed at the sharp end the peel easily slides off and the clove crushes into a slight paste. Place all the peeled cloves in a bowl and discard the skins.
4) On a large cutting board, place the whole chicken and sever the membranes connecting the skin to the body of the chicken. Pull out excess fat off.
5) Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a baking tray.

MAKING
6) In the bowl containing the garlic, add pepper and dill weed. Mix well.
7) Take half of the above mixture and place it under the skin, patting it gently all the way to distribute the mixture evenly.
8) Stuff the remaining mixture inside its skin and place the stuffed chicken on the baking tray.
9) Stuff the trimmed mushrooms into the cavity of the chicken and place the celery pieces on the tray, around the chicken.
10) Bake for 1 1/2 hours using the garlic water to baste the chicken every 15-20 minutes.
11) Once baked, remove the mushrooms from the chicken and place the latter on a serving platter.
12) Chop the mushrooms fine. Discard the celery but pour the dripping from the tray into a saucepan. Add in flour and mix well. Pour sherry, half-and-half and drop in the chopped mushroom. Cook till the sauce thickens while stirring continuously.

SERVING
13) Carve the chicken into quarters and serve with the mushroom sauce.
14) Serve hot cornbread, biscuits, rice, pasta, potatoes or grits alongside.
