The chicken is immersed in a honey, citrus, and chili-infused marinade, and then roasted on a sheet pan with carrots and dates. Not only is it delicious, it’s the perfect no-fuss dish for company.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
First start with the marinade: In a medium bowl whisk together the Lemon (1 teaspoon), Lemon (3 tablespoon), Sunkist Orange (1 teaspoon), Orange Juice (6 tablespoon).
Step 2
Add Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (6 tablespoon), Whole Grain Mustard (3 tablespoon), Honey (6 tablespoon), Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1/2 teaspoon), Garlic (3 clove), Fresh Thyme Leaves (1 tablespoon) and Salt (2 1/2 teaspoon) and whisk again.
Step 3
Place the Bone-In Chicken Leg (4 pound), Carrot (3 cup), Yellow Onion (1), and Dried Dates (1 cup) in a large sealable plastic bag. Add the marinade and seal shut. Massage to make sure everything is evenly coated with the marinade.
Step 4
Place the bag on a rimmed sheet pan to protect against leakage and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours or overnight.
Step 5
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) and set an oven rack in the middle position.
Step 6
Transfer all the ingredients from the bag, including the marinade, to a rimmed sheet pan. Turn the chicken skin side up. Roast until chicken is lightly browned and cooked through, 40-45 minutes. Halfway through cooking, stir the carrots.
Step 7
Turn on broiler, and cook 1-3 minutes more, or until the skin is golden brown and crispy. Watch carefully because the honey in the marinade can cause the skin to burn quickly!
Step 8
Transfer the chicken, carrots, onions and dates onto a platter, along with the sauce in the pan. Sprinkle with Italian Flat-Leaf Parsley (2 tablespoon), Scallion (2), and Salted Pistachios (1/4 cup) over the top and serve.
