You’re gonna need are some chicken legs,fresh thyme, fresh rosemary some garlic cloves, potatoes, lemons, salt, pepper, extra virgin olive oil. I’m doing is putting my chicken legs in here in a bowl skin and all because the skins gonna get really nice and crispy.which I love now I’m using chicken legs why am i using chicken legs.I’m using chicken legs and in my opinion chicken legs are everything chicken breast is it they’re cheap they’re juicy they’re very very flavorful.
You can cook them for a long time and they get even more tender and kind of fall off the bone while chicken breast you have to cook them quickly you have to you know give them a little tender loving care just because they dry up really quickly and really fast and if,you cook them for a long time well they kind of very tasteless and they don’t have a lot of taste and they’re expensive so for dinners like this.I go ahead and use the dark meat I love it it’s cheap it’s delicious it’s good to go so all.I’m doing in this bowl is making a little marinade now let me give you a tip you can save even more time get a time you can save even more time by making marinating the chicken okay you can marinate the chicken the week before pop it in the freezer in the ziploc bag and guess what the night before you pop it into your fridge and defrost by itself and you do nothing to it but put it in a pan and bake it and that is dinner.
I’m doing is putting a little rosemary and some fresh thyme in my chicken just like that I’m gonna season it with salt and pepper and then.I’m going to zest and juice a lemon small little lemon and then.I’m gonna cut the lemon in quarters and put the whole lemon right in there it’s kind of roast up its gonna get caramelize around the edges but have a tiny little note of the the lemon kind of get it gets caramelized but it still stays a little bit bitter which tastes really good if,that makes any sense so that’s why I do it if,you don’t want to add the lemon in there then don’t this is all about whatever you have left over just squeezing then why am i right in like so then quartering cutting the half of the path again a little extra virgin olive oil now.
I’m gonna set this aside for I don’t know five minutes however long it takes for me to cut the potatoes and also you want to pre-heat your oven to 450 you wanna be nice and hot now all.I’m doing to my potatoes first of all.I’m a baking dish here.I want to just drizzle it with a little bit of olive oil because these glass baking sheets can sometimes stick and we don’t want that but that’s perfect now all.I’m doing to my potatoes these are Yukon Gold which means the skin is really tender and I don’t have to peel it.I’m just gonna cut them into big cubes like that.I don’t want that part and just put it directly into the baking sheet into the baking pan I’ve got some garlic cloves here that I did not peel why didn’t I peel it because we’re cooking this at a really high temperature which means that if.
5I would appeal it the garlic would burn if,the garlic burns becomes bitter becomes terrible you don’t want to get back to leave it in the skin it’s caramelized it gets really sweet you can pop it out of skin and eat it just as is it’s got a really sweet flavor.I’m just seasoning my potatoes with a little extra virgin olive oil salt and pepper in a last little sprig of rosemary that.I’m just gonna scatter and tear just like that and this is this is my kind of food this is home food I make so many variations of this.I make it I make some with pearl onions peas and a little bit of white wine I make some with sweet potatoes for the fall with a little butter nut squash and sage delicious.we’re gonna make this one now I’m just taking my chicken.I’m kind of moving the potatoes out of the way.
So,I can make a little room for my chicken cold the next day cook them up with like you with potato hash it’s delicious right on top it doesn’t hurt anything take my lemons put my lemon right up top it’s just a this is easy food this is home food don’t be precise about it now this is gonna go into your preheated oven wash your hands first for about an hour don’t do anything to it just leave it alone until the chicken is tender and it’s cooked all the way through the potatoes are cooked and slightly crispy brown on the edges and that’s it pop it in look at that huh is that not a beautiful sight or what now I serve it.
I’m in good an hour of work but whatever you you know it’s probably push my nails or something in that time but this looks perfect you can serve this to just you and your husband with like a side salad or something you could serve it.
