Total Time: 1 hr 25 min
Prep: 50 min
Cook: 35 min
Yield: 8 to 10 servings
Level: Easy

2 sticks butter
Juice of 2 to 3 lemons
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 cloves garlic, minced
24 whole chicken legs


Preheat the oven to 230 degrees Celsius. Line baking sheets with foil.

Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the lemon juice, salt, black pepper, cayenne and garlic, and stir. Set aside.

Rinse and pat the chicken legs dry. With metal tongs, dip them one by one into the butter mixture and place on the prepared baking sheets.

Once all of the chicken legs are coated and on the baking sheet, take a pastry brush and give them one last coating of the butter mixture.

Place them into the oven for 30 to 35 minutes, basting a couple of times during roasting. If they need a bit more color, turn on the broiler for a couple minutes and watch them closely.

Remove them when they are nice and golden brown and fully cooked.

Garlic-Roasted Chicken

Garlic-Roasted Chicken


Total Time: 30 min
Prep: 5 min
Cook: 25 min
Yield:4 servings

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 skin-on, boneless chicken breasts (about 1 1/2 pounds)
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
2 heads garlic
4 sprigs fresh rosemary
4 slices sourdough bread, grilled or toasted
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Heat the olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and cook, skin-side down, until browned, about 5 minutes.

Separate the heads of garlic into cloves but do not peel. Flip the chicken; add the garlic and rosemary to the skillet and transfer to the oven. Roast until the chicken is cooked through but still moist, 15 to 20 more minutes.

Place the bread on a platter and top each slice with a chicken breast. Add the vinegar to the skillet and scrape up any browned bits with a wooden spoon. Add 3 tablespoons water and simmer until the sauce thickens slightly, about 2 minutes. Pour the sauce and garlic over the chicken and bread.

Tip: You can squeeze the garlic out of its skin and spread on the chicken or bread.

Chicken drumsticks

Chicken drumsticks

With colorful peppers

Serves 4
Cooks In 45 minutes
Difficulty Not too tricky


6-8 chicken drumsticks , (depending on the age and appetite of your children)
1/2 a red pepper , deseeded and sliced
1/2 a yellow pepper , deseeded and sliced
1/2 an orange pepper , deseeded and sliced
1 lemon , cut into quarters
200 ml fresh chicken stock*
1 small bay leaf
freshly ground black pepper , to taste
1 small handful of fresh parsley , chopped


Preheat the oven to 200℃/fan assisted 180℃/gas 6

In a frying pan heat a little oil over a medium to high heat and add the chicken drumsticks. Cook for a few minutes, just to allow the skin to take on a bit of colour.

If your frying pan is ovenproof add the rest of the ingredients to the pan. If not, just transfer the chicken drumsticks to a roasting tin and then add the rest of the ingredients.

Pop in the oven for 30 to 35 minutes to cook. The chicken skin should be golden and the flesh cooked through (check by cutting into a thick piece of the drumstick to see that the juices are clear), the stock will have reduced to a make a nice sauce, with a subtle lemon taste. If you prefer a thicker sauce, you can reduce it a little further on the hob.
Remove the lemon quarters and bay leaf before serving and garnish with a sprinkle of parsley.

*If you choose to use shop-bought stock, please check the label carefully for allergens (celery and egg are commonly found allergen).

If nobody in your family is allergic to dairy, you can stir in a dollop of soured cream to the sauce when serving.
