Personal Notes:
My mother made sauce every Sunday---along with this roasted chicken. It was almost a Sunday staple in our home. The smell alone is enough to satiate your appetite, but wait till you taste it! Don't freak out because you're leaving the skin on the garlic (you can actually leave it on the onion,too) You're just adding more flavor.
