Recipe by Garden Gate Kate

Roasted chicken skin becomes golden and crisp while goat cheese melts next to the leg meat keeping it moist and juicy. Potatoes and zucchini absorb the flavors of the white wine garlic lemon sauce as they brown next to the chicken in an easy but impressive one pot meal.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F degrees. Place oven rack in middle position.
  2. In a large roasting pan, carefully loosen chicken skin on chicken legs all the way down to the drumstick bone without ripping skin. Evenly press a layer of 2 slices of goat cheese on top of thigh and drumstick. Position skin back in place with cheese underneath. Generously rub chicken skin with melted butter; reserve any remaining melted butter for white wine lemon mixture. Sprinkle onion powder on top of chicken legs.
  3. Arrange potatoes and zucchini around chicken legs. Sprinkle finely chopped onion evenly over the potatoes and zucchini in the pan.
  4. In another medium bowl, whisk together minced garlic and olive oil. Sprinkle olive oil with garlic evenly over the potatoes and zucchini in the pan.
  5. In a medium bowl, whisk together white wine, lemon juice, and reserved melted butter; drizzle this over the potatoes and zucchini in the pan. Sprinkle marjoram or oregano over the potatoes and zucchini.
  6. Sprinkle salt and black pepper over the chicken legs, potatoes, and zucchini. Drizzle 2 tablespoons chicken broth into the 4 corners of the pan (do NOT drizzle on top of the chicken, potatoes, or zucchini).
  7. Roast, uncovered, for 1 hour 20 minutes at 400F degrees. Serve chicken, potatoes, and zucchini with pan juices.
