Ingredients

How to make it

  • Heat oven to 425°.
  • Combine the garlic, oregano, salt, chili powder, cumin, and black pepper. Add olive oil and mix well. Use a mortar and pestle to make a paste consistency, or mash with a fork.
  • Wash chicken leg quarters and pat dry. Snip off any excess skin. Arrange the chicken pieces in a baking dish and pat the garlic mixture over each quarter. Pour 1/2 cup of chicken broth (part dry white wine, if desired) into the baking dish. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, or until juices run clear.
  • Serves 4.

    Delicious! I only had three quarters so my paste was a bit thicker. I cooked them for 45 minutes. I added a picture and a thread in IMI 2/8/14

    This was perfect baked chicken. Flavorful & moist. I completely removed the skin from the chicken, so baked it covered with foil at 400 degrees, then about 10 minutes uncovered.

    This has easily become one of my family's favorites. One thing I did differently, on accident, was poured the chicken stock in with the garlic mixture and poured it over the chicken. We actually prefer it that way, but either way...YUM!
