Car shopping yesterday took up far more of the day than I had hoped it would, and this is not a quick dish to make, but I had already thawed the chicken and didn't have anything else ready to go.
This is quite possibly my favorite chicken recipe. The seasoning and basic method can be used with any bone-in chicken parts (or whole chickens, or turkey for that matter). It's dependable, and better than it has any right to be for something so easy. I like to make it with potatoes, though I have not mastered pommes frites. It's my default dish for company when I'm not sure about their tastes, and for weekends at home when I have time to spend in the kitchen and want that wonderful roasting smell.
