Chicken legs from the oven.

Who doesn't love it! These chicken legs from the oven with ras el hanout and figs is one of my favorite dishes to make when I have little desire or time to cook, but still want to eat well. The oven does almost all the work! Serve vegetables with it... A simple salad is great and some tasty baked potatoes taste delicious here!

Marinating chicken legs.

A chicken is nothing without marinade, and of course you have it in as many varieties as there are people. And there are a lot of marinades that are tasty for chicken legs from the oven. Lemon and pepper chicken for example, with pul biber, lemon, pressed garlic and olive oil. Or this chicken marinade from Jamie Oliver made from delicious fresh spices.

If you have time, you can leave the chicken in the marinade for a while, but you can also make some notches in the meat so that the spices can absorb well.
