Garlic Roasted Chicken Leg Quarters


These Garlic Roasted Chicken Leg Quarters make a regular appearance in my house. They make a great midweek meal – comforting when served with potatoes in winter, but they make a great summer meal too when served alongside a leafy green salad.

I start this dish by making a garlic paste which I rub into the chicken legs. I place the legs in a roasting dish. Then pour in some chicken broth. You can use ¼ cup of dry white wine with ¼ cup of chicken broth if you prefer. Cook in the oven for 45 minutes or until the chicken registers at least 165°F on a food thermometer.

To make the Garlic Roasted Chicken Leg Quarters, you will need the following ingredients:
