|An inexpensive home cooked meal that the whole family will love|
Ingredients (Serves 4):
4 chicken leg quarters (mine come 4 to a package), antibiotic free
1/2tsp dried oregano
1/4tsp poultry seasoning
1/2tsp dried sage
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4c fresh basil, chopped (don't buy fresh herbs exclusively for this recipe, I just had some on hand)
3tbs extra virgin olive oil, first cold pressed is best
finely ground sea salt and pepper
1. Preheat your oven to 425F. In a small bowl combine seasonings, basil, garlic and olive oil. Mix well and mash with a fork or pestle (optional).
2. Wash chicken and pat dry. Trim off any extra skin hanging off the ends. Arrange chicken pieces on a baking sheet or roasting pan lined with foil. Spread the oil-spice mixture evenly over each leg. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until the juices run clean and the internal temp is 180F.
Tip: If you want your skins extra crispy, put them under the broiler for a few minutes prior to serving.
