 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3      pound         Roaster Chicken
    3                    garlic*
    1      tablespoon    Cajun Spices
      3/4  cup           Olive oil -- **
    1      cup           All purpose flour**
 Preheat oven to 325 *large heads of (about 50 cloves) **or as needed As the
 coating hardens and bakes on the chicken, the flavors and juices are all
 sealed in.. Best chicken you ever ate. Put peeled garlic cloves in blender
 with 1/2 cup of olive oil and Cajun spices. Blend until creamy consistency,
 add more oil if needed. Place the oil and garlic mixture in a large bowl. Add
 flour slowly, mixing until a very heavy, thick, smooth mud like consistency is
 achieved. With string, tie the chicken wings and the legs tight against sides
 of carcass. Using a spatula, completely coat chicken with Garlic Mud, as
 evenly as possible, using it all. Fill in all crevices between wings and legs.
 Place on a rack, breast side up, in a pan and put in preheated oven. Roast
 whole chicken about 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours or until coating is browned well. If
 using cutup chicken, coat each piece very well, place on a rack and roast for
 a shorter time, until chicken coating is brown. Serve chicken with the crisp
 pieces of Garlic coating .. I would suggest using a vertical roaster.
 It is a wire stand that the chicken slips down on and is vertical. Set your
 bottom rack as low as possible to accommodate in oven. Even a lower heat
 setting with a longer roast time is even better. >>> This is a modification of
 an old Chinese recipe called Beggers Chicken. They used mud to encase
 it...Then put into a hot bed of coals to cook.... FROM: MARTY FEINS (BGNJ11A)
