Roasted Marinated Chicken

Safeway had the whole leg and thigh family pack on sale and I didn't have any new ideas on what to do with them. With a little thought, I came up with the following recipe:


5 whole chicken legs with thigh attached

5 or 6 cloves of garlic
Juice of 1 whole lemon or lime
5 Fresh Sage leaves
1 Spring fresh oregano. I used Mexican oregano so I used one large leaf.
Salt and Pepper to taste (approximately 1/2 tsp of salt and two turns of the pepper grinder)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil.

Process until smooth in a food processor or blender.

Place chicken in a large baking or roasting pan. Pour marinate over chicken and make sure to coat both sides. Let sit for approximately 1 hour.

Bake in a 375 degree oven. Until both sides are golden brown.

Serve with steamed long grain white rice seasoned with salt.

Corn on the cob or tossed salad.
