Garlicky roasted chicken

I love the idea of having roasted chicken for a weekend lunch. This is an excellent and super-easy recipe, with just the right amount of garlic.

Ingredients (for 2 chickens)
2 chickens
6 garlic cloves
½ stick of butter
1 Tbsp olive oil
Salt, pepper, peperoncino, dry oregano

Thoroughly rinse the chicken and then dry it using paper towels. Season the chicken with salt. Don’t forget to also put some salt in the interior of the chicken. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

In a saucepan melt the butter over low heat. Add the olive oil and slightly sauté the garlic cloves for about 12 minutes. You want to infuse the butter with the flavor and aroma of the garlic. The olive oil will prevent the butter from burning. When you feel the garlicky aroma all over your kitchen, put 3 of the sautéed garlic cloves inside of each chicken. Pour the melted butter on the chicken. Add more salt, pepper, peperoncino and oregano. Cook in the oven for about 80 minutes. Then broil for about 5 minutes.
