The baked chicken legs recipe is at top of preferences when it comes to chicken recipes in any part of the planet. Therefore, in each country are lots of food recipes for baked chicken legs with vegetables.
When you look at ingredients, you might think this is a Greek recipe but, actually, it’s not! The recipe comes from southern France, more precisely from Provence, the region renowned all over the world for its flavored foods. This food recipe doesn’t make an exception because saffron is a very flavored spice. Plus, it’s rare and very expensive since it has a unique aroma that is unmatched by any other spice.
Of course, if you don’t have saffron, you can cook the recipe without using it and the food will be very tasty anyway. Or you can replace it with a little rosemary or sage for a different aroma blend in your plate.
Speaking technically about baked chicken legs with vegetables, the recipe is very easy to make and doesn’t require sophisticated ingredients, except saffron.
In addition, cooking chicken legs in the oven needs a short time, so this recipe is perfect for any occasion when you want to eat a special meal but you don’t want to spend much too time in the kitchen.
Of course, this food is perfect when you want to impress your guests with a less known dish! So, learn to cook chicken leg quarters in the oven in a refined way!

Yes, you can make baked chicken with vegetables using a whole chicken exactly in the same way. However, for better cooking, I recommend butterflying the whole chicken before cooking it in the oven.
