Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons grated lemon rind
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 head garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon hot pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 1/2 lbs chicken legs (bone-in, skin-on)

Method

In glass bowl, combine lemon rind and juice, garlic, oil, hot pepper flakes and salt. Add chicken, turning to coat and pushing some mixture under skin. Cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours or for up to 24 hours.

Arrange chicken, skin side up, on foil-lined baking sheet. Roast in 425°F (220°C) oven, brushing once with pan drippings, until juices run clear when chicken is pierced, about 35 minutes.
