Everywhere are hundreds or even thousands of baked chicken recipes that use almost any ingredient that comes to mind.
I share with you a baked chicken leg quarters recipe in a French-inspired style, more precisely from the Provence region, in the south of the country.
This region is known worldwide for a combination of aromatic plants that bears its name – herbs de Provence.
Of course, I use the recipe this mix of spices because it gives a fantastic flavor to the chicken and fits very well together with this type of meat.
Although at first glance it may seem like a complicated recipe because of its French origin, it’s actually very simple!
Basically, all you have to do when cooking chicken legs in the oven is to flavor them with spices and garlic (I recommend also using wine for even more aroma!), bake it in the oven at low temperature and then you can enjoy a delicious chicken roast as you rarely ate!
Of course, you may find another combination more suitable, after all, each one can personalize food according to its own preferences!
And because this article is about a French food recipe, a glass of dry white wine can not be missing near the baked chicken, especially if it comes from the Provence region! However, another good wine can be served at the table!
Enjoy Provence baked chicken legs recipe!
