Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
step 2
Clean and trim off any extra skin and fat off the Bone-In Chicken Legs (3 lb). Cut a few slashes in the skin.
step 3
In a large bowl place Oranges (3), Fresh Lemon Thyme Leaves (3 sprigs), Olive Oil (1 1/2 Tbsp), Fresh Parsley (2 Tbsp), juice of the Lemon (1/2), {@10:}, Garlic (3 cloves), Scallion (1 bunch), Ground Allspice (1/2 tsp), Fresh Ginger (1/2 tsp), {@11:}, and Freshly Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp).
step 4
Give it a good mix, then pour it over the chicken. You may marinate for a couple hours or use right away.
step 5
Massage the pieces of chicken with your hands to coat both sides, then drizzle on the remaining Olive Oil (1 1/2 Tbsp) over the chicken. Tuck in the Lemon (1) as well as the Fresh Lemon Thyme Leaves (2 sprigs) between the pieces of chicken on a roasting pan/sheet and place the Cherry Tomatoes (to taste) in-between as well.
step 6
Depending on the size of your chicken pieces, it will take between 1 hour and 5 minutes and 1 hour and 20 minutes. For additional color, you may hit the broil setting the last 2-4 minutes. Serve warm with sides of choice!
