This recipe yields delicious, juicy chicken with a crispy, salty crust. Most of the cooking time is inactive so you are free to go wash your hair, feed your cat, or call your friends and discuss last night’s Mad Men finale.
I served this chicken with a pesto potato salad the recipe of which I meant to share but realized it needs some work.
(Yield: 4-6 servings)
2 lbs/about 8 drumsticks
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
3/4 tsp black pepper
1 tsp poultry seasoning
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
Procedure: Preheat the oven to 400F. Wash chicken and pat dry. Season generously with salt on both sides and place into baking dish. Place the remaining ingredients in a small saucepan and set over low heat until butter melts and mixture becomes fragrant, about 1-2 min. Pour mixture over chicken and massage evenly throughout.
Roast for 1 hour, until it’s golden brown.
