Remove the white outer papery layer that covers the head of garlic, leaving each clove attached to the root. Slice off the top 1/2-inch of the head of garlic crosswise. Place head of garlic on a piece of foil. Drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt. Wrap tightly in foil.
Place chicken on a baking sheet. Discard leftover marinade. Nestle vegetables between pieces of chicken. Place lemon slices on baking sheet. Place foil-wrapped garlic on baking sheet. Sprinkle oregano over the chicken and vegetables.
Roast until chicken is completely cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 165°F, about 45 minutes. Finish under the broiler, 2 to 3 minutes, keeping a close eye, until skin turns golden brown and crispy. Remove from the oven. Unwrap garlic. Serve with bread.
