I am still continuing to clean out my freezer and found some chicken legs buried deep in my meat drawer. This roasted chicken recipe is so simple and tasty that it is going to make it into my usual weeknight rotation.
Could this be any easier? Just a couple of ingredients, cauliflower, garlic and chicken legs. Of course you also need some salt and pepper and olive oil. Or EVOO as Rachael Ray says. The TV remote is optional. Preheat your oven to 400 and lets get cooking!
Smash and chop your garlic.
Get your pan heated with some oil.
Season the chicken with some salt or seasoned salt. I should have done this the night before but it still turned out tasty.
Get the chicken legs in the pan and cook for about 15 minutes until it is browned on all sides.
After the chicken has browned, get it out and add in the cauliflower and garlic.
Cook the cauliflower and garlic for about 5 minutes until it starts to brown.
Put the chicken back in and put that all in the oven for about 25 minutes. At this point it already smells awesome.
This was so easy, even Tom could have made this one if he wasn't completely mortified by raw chicken :) When I make this again I might squeeze a little lemon juice over the pan right as it comes out of the oven, just to brighten up the flavors.
I hope you all have a great week!!
