       Title: Garlic Mud Chicken
  Categories: Poultry
       Yield: 4 servings
       3 lb Roaster Chicken
       3    Garlic*
       1 tb Cajun Spices,
     3/4 c  Of Olive oil;**
       1 c  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.
