Author Notes: It's snowing outside. Something in the oven warms up the house. Or you're just in the mood for a hearty chicken dish. Rosemary and lemon juice, and a long lowish cook, make these quarters great. —Rick Bailey
Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 2 hrs 30 min
Chicken leg/thigh quarters, skin on
tablespoon to 2 dried rosemary
dash Garlic salt and pepper, to taste preference
- Rinse and pat dry the chicken pieces.
- Lay them in a roasting pan, skin-side up. I lay down parchment first, to prevent stickage and to make for easier clean-up.
- Squeeze juice of lemon half, then add garlic salt, pepper, and rosemary. Turn pieces skin-side down, adding lemon juice, salt, pepper, and rosemary.
- Roast at 350 for one hour. Then turn the pieces skin side up and roast for another 60-90 minutes at 325.
