roasted chicken legs with lemon & thyme


One of my cooking goals is to cook a whole chicken. I have yet to do so but for now, I will settle with roasted chicken legs. I just did my own thing by sprinkling the legs with salt and pepper and then searing them in a pan with olive oil. Afterwards, I put them in a baking pan and topped with sliced lemons, garlic and thyme. Then I let it cook in the oven for about 30 min. It came out juicy and flavorful.. perfect for a simple dinner. I think I will try the same thing with a whole chicken next time! πŸ™‚

Pat the chicken legs dry with paper towels. Sprinkle salt & pepper on each leg. Add olive oil to a pan and sear the legs until they start to brown.
