  1. What do I do with the garlic after it’s mashed? I’m assuming I mix SOME with chicken but surely not 8 heads.

    1. I personally combine with all 8 cloves of garlic. Roasting the garlic brings a milder flavor but you can discard what you want.

  2. I searched the recipes for whole cooked chicken, and I don’t see any recipes that actually use this! All the recipes I’ve seen so far are for raw chicken.
