How to Make Fireman Bob's Tarr Chic with Smas Garl Pota.......


  1. NOTE: Roasting Garlic is very simple to do if You haven't done it before... Just take a Bulb of Garlic ( Head ) and " cut " the top off leaving the cloves exposed, drizzle some extra virgin olive oil on the top of the bulbs/heads and wrap in foil tightly. Place in oven and roast for 30 minutes at 400 degrees. If this is your first time roasting garlic, You will want to do more then You need, because You will fall in love with the taste... see roasted garlic photo...
  2. For the Chicken...

    Place half of the lemon slices under the skin all around and inside the cavity...

    Prepare the Whole Chicken by combining 1 cup of melted butter, heavy cream, and lemon juice over the whole chicken...

    Combine the flour, salt, and pepper, lemon zest, and tarragon, fresh and dried. Sprinkle the flour mixture all over the Chicken.
  3. Place the Chicken in a Large Dutch Oven and add the chicken stock and white onions.

    Cook at 250 degrees for 3 hours.

  4. For the Smashed Garlic Potatoes...
