Roasted Chicken & Potato Casserole~ Day 11

When I can get chicken for under $1 a pound creating dishes with chicken can be fun. There are a ton of complicated dishes that need a million ingredients and take too much time. So, after a crazy weekend and not much kitchen energy I opted for a no fail recipe that I created several months ago.

I threw 4 chicken leg quarters in a large baking dish and mixed up a paste of garlic cloves, spices and EVO (extra virgin olive oil).

Just rub the paste all over chicken and pour your chicken broth in the bottom of the pan.

Bake at 425 for 40-50 minutes…
