Instructions:Slice 1/4 inch off top of garlic head. Then rub garlic with oil.
Wrap garlic in foil and bake in a 375 degree F oven until very soft when pressed (about 1 1/4 hours).
Carefully remove garlic from foil; transfer to a rack and let stand until cool enough to touch (about 10 minutes).
Meanwhile, rinse chicken, pat dry, and sprinkle with chopped thyme and pepper. Place, skinned side up, in a lightly oiled 9-inch baking pan.
Bake in a 450 degree F oven until meat in thickest part is no longer pink; cut to test (12 to 15 minutes).
Meanwhile, squeeze garlic cloves from skins into a small bowl. Add salt; mash garlic thoroughly with a fork, incorporating salt.
Spread a fourth of the garlic mixture over each chicken piece; then sprinkle chicken with cheese.
Return to oven; continue to bake just until cheese is melted and bubbly (about 3 more minutes).
Press a thyme sprig into cheese on each piece of chicken.
