Step 1
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (205 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 Orange Juice (3/4 cup) , Fresh Lemon Thyme Leaves (3 sprigs) , Olive Oil (1 1/2 Tbsp) , Fresh Parsley (2 Tbsp) , juice of the Lemon (1/2) , Honey (1 Tbsp) , Garlic (3 cloves) , Scallion (1) , Ground Allspice (1/2 tsp) , Fresh Ginger (1/2 tsp) , Salt (1/2 tsp) , 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!
