Provincal Chicken in the Dutch Oven

Don't let the 40 cloves of garlic scare you. This garlic will taste like sweet roasted garlic when you are done. So let's get started by putting on your apron & get cooking!

2 (3 lb) chickens...cut up
1/2 t salt
1 t pepper
3/4 c extra virgin olive oil
1/2 t each: marjoram, oregano, summer savory
1t thyme
40 cloves garlic UNpeeled
1 loaf french bread sliced & toasted (if in oven...heat to 375)

Season chicken w/salt & 1/2 t pepper. In Large DO... heat 2 T oil & add chicken in batches & brown on all sides. (approx 3 min ea.)
Remove from heat...replace all chicken & add herbs, UNpeeled garlic, and 1/2 c + 2 T olive oil & 1/2 t pepper... toss to coat.
Cover top of DO w/ tinfoil & then put on lid. Bake 1 hr + 10 min... Do not remove lid until toward the end of cooking time to check on it.
When done... take out garlic cloves & "squeeze" garlic out into a dish... mash with oil & herbs from bottom of DO & spread on toasted french bread. (garlic is mild tasting from the long roasting time) You will have every neighboring camper "just stopping by"!
