Roast chicken (legs and thighs only) seasonings?
- QueenB Mar 1, 2007 06:23 AM
I'll be roasting some chicken legs and thighs for hubby and myself tonight. Usually I just rub the chicken with some salt, pepper, thyme and olive oil and roast away. I thought that tonight, I'd do something a little different.
I own just about every spice and herb out on the market. I also have fresh basil, rosemary, parsley, thyme, mint and sage plants.
Please give me some ideas on how to season my roast chicken parts to change things up! And I guarantee I'll try a bunch of suggestions in the future.
Looking forward to your suggestions!
Start marinating them now in plain yogurt with plenty (*plenty!*) of garlic and cumin mixed in. If you have it, add corriander, garam masala (sp?), cinnamon, giner - all Indian-style spices. Remove, discard marinade, grill or roast, love.
I'm a big fan of rosemary and the rosemary, red pepper flake chicken under a brick is a favorite, try those with your EVOO, salt and pepper. Sage is a natural with chicken would be a great alternative to your thyme as well. Thigh qtrs are a terrific value. Had some baked with Paul Prudhomme's Chicken Magic on them, just terrific. You are making me hungry.
Coat w/ bread crumbs and parmesan - drizzle w/ butter and bake...sorry, don't have the exact recipe.
