There are never enough chicken legs to go around in my family. So if you’d prefer, you can use all chicken legs in this dish. The main idea of this recipe is that it’s great for a crowd, but easily halved for a regular weeknight dinner.


  1. Heat oven to 425°F.

  2. In two 3-quart baking casseroles, arrange chicken pieces. Evenly divide lemons, oranges, onion, olives, garlic, and herbs between the two roasters. Drizzle with olive oil; season with salt and pepper.

  3. Place chicken in oven. Roast, turning chicken pieces once, for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown and no longer pink in center. Cook to internal temp of 165°F.
