Garlic roasted chicken leg quarters are tasty and easy on the budget. Serve this chicken with roasted or mashed potatoes and your favorite vegetables.


  • 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried leaf oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • dash freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 chicken leg quarters
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth (part dry white wine, if desired)


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.

If I could only pick one chicken dish to eat the rest of my life, this would be it. The chicken was so juicy and so flavorful, everyone went back for seconds.
