Prep Chicken - Chop off the end of the chicken leg and tip of the wings. Chop breast halves in half and separate thighs from drumsticks. Dry pieces well.
Brown Chicken - Heat oil in a large shallow casserole over medium-high heat. Add chicken pieces and cook, flipping, until they are well browned on all sides.
Make Sauce - Put all the garlic in processor and mince. Separate out 1 tbsp and add the rest of the garlic to the chicken. Season with salt and pepper, and add brandy. Light the brandy (stand back at first!) and stir until flame subsides. Cover and cook 15 minutes longer.
To Serve - Remove cover, sprinkle with remaining tbsp minced garlic and season with a bit of salt. Put on plates, spoon sauce over and serve with baby peas or green beans and potatoes.
