An original recipe taken from the Paul Martin cookbook and translated into English by me.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Clean legs under cold water and dry them.
  2. With a small knife, make an incision between and bone of lower part of one leg and insert through the other (criss-cross).
  3. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  4. Salt and pepper each leg and cover them with flour.
  5. In a saucepan add the butter and brown them 4 minutes each side.
  6. In a small pot add the garlic butter, parsley, and lemon juice; simmer a few minutes.
  7. Put the legs in an oven proof-baking dish; pour over the garlic sauce and bake for about 30 to 35 minutes.
  8. Serve on preheated plates. Bon appetit.

Very, very good recipe. Thank you. Like Bergy, I used fresh garlic, and it couldn't have tasted better.
