I made this using a family pack of chicken legs. I had to increase cooking time because the legs were so big. These turned out wonderful and they were so moist. The recipe is easy and quick. The fresh squeezed lemon was great and not over-powering like the bottled stuff. It reheated pretty great (I made them for the Sabbath) but they were better fresh out of the oven. I will definitely make them again. I did use more garlic just because I love it. Thanks for the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. In a shallow dish filled with a mixture of garlic, lemon juice, oil, and parsley, roll the chicken quarters to coat them.
  3. Allow to marinate at least 1 hour.
  4. Preheat the broiler.
  5. Drain the chicken, reserving the marinade.
  6. Set the broiling rack about 7 inches from the heat.
  7. Place the quarters, skin side down on the broiling rack, and broil 10 minutes, basting often with the cooking juices and a little of the marinade.
  8. Turn the quarters over and broil the chicken 10 minutes longer.
  9. Turn and brush twice more with remaining oil mixture until both sides are golden brown and crusty.
  10. Serve at once.
