We seriously love leg quarters in this house and this recipe is the absolute best. The skin is so flavorful and crispy yet the meat is moist and tender. PERFECT! I have even started using the same seasoning blend for other chicken recipes. I served the chicken with green beans and shells and cheese for a simple meal! I found this recipe here: Rustic Roasted Chicken
- 3 or 4 leg quarters
- 3 tbsps olive oil
- 1 tsp seasoning salt
- 1/4 tsp dried thyme
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- salt & pepper to taste
-Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
-Pat chicken dry with a paper towel and lay on a rack in a large roasting pan. Salt & pepper to your taste.
-In a small bowl, whisk together seasonings and olive oil.
-Liberally brush marinade over each piece.
-Bake for 70 minutes or until 165 degrees.
-Baste with pan drippings halfway through cooking time & again before serving.
Green Beans with Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies
- 12-16 ozs. whole green beans ( I honestly just grab a few handfuls from the bag so this is a guess!)
- 1 10 oz. can of diced tomatoes with green chilies, do not drain.
- 1/2 cup water
-Bring the water to a boil in saucepan. Then add the green beans.
-Pour entire contents of can on top of beans. No need to stir, just let them sit on top.
-Cover and cook for 8-10 minutes.
-Drain the cooking liquid before serving
Note: I have a huge Costco bag of frozen green beans so that’s what I used for this recipe. I’m sure you can use fresh green beans, just adjust the cooking time. I will be trying this when my green beans are ready from my garden.
