        I don't have her recipe but make a similiar dish. I don't measure but can give you the basics. Heat a large oven proof skillet with 1/4" olive oil. Sprinkle in some crumbled dried rosemary and 1-2 bay. Season chicken with salt, granulated garlic and pepper (I use a combo of black, white and cayenne). Add chicken to hot oil along with the juice of 1-2 lemons, a splash of Lea & Perrins and some smashed whole garlic cloves. Saute till golden , splash in some white wine (optional)then place in 350' oven15 min. Alternatively, you can add the wine stove top prior to browning,, cook the chicken with a lid on till just about done then remove the lid and brown . This eliminates the oven.

          Forgot to mention, you will have to raise heat to high to boil off excess liquid prior to browning.

      2. an easy recipe to eyeball:
        olive oil, crushed and whole garlic cloves (no granulated), rosemary - fresh!, chicken base in place of salt, pepper. marinate for no longer than 10 hrs. add white wine before cooking (mixture should come about 1/2 way up cut chick in roasting pan skins side down). 500 strong convection oven brown, flip- add bit more wine, brown, done.

          Seasoning the dish at each step (granulated, garlic, dried rosemary ) in addtion to the fresh layers the flavors, resulting in depth of flavor. Also, crushed garlic turns into burned bits at 500'.
