Roasted Chicken with Garlic and Breadby Aliwaks

WHO: Aliwaks is a longtime Food52er and an adventurous cook from Philly. WHAT: The closest thing you can get to Thanksgiving outside of November. HOW: Toss bread cubes with delicious things, roast a chicken atop it all. WHY WE LOVE IT: This dish is dead simple, but it has a secret: by roasting the chicken on top of the bread, it's basically a stuffing that makes itself. And we love everything about it. Case closed.
