Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic

Yield 8 servings (serving size: 1 thigh, 1 drumstick, 5 tablespoons vegetable mixture, and 5 garlic cloves)
This is a classic Provençale-style dish in which the thighs and drumsticks are baked with garlic cloves. The garlic cooks in its own skin, becoming very soft and creamy.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 6 parsley sprigs
  • 4 celery stalks, each cut into 3 pieces
  • 8 chicken thighs (about 3 pounds), skinned
  • 8 chicken drumsticks (about 2 pounds), skinned
  • 1/2 cup dry vermouth
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 40 garlic cloves (about 3 heads), unpeeled
