Ingredients

  1. Check 1teaspoon olive oil
  2. Check 4 chicken legs
  3. Check 2teaspoons curry powder
  4. Check kosher salt and black pepper
  5. Check 1pound okra, trimmed
  6. Check 4 pieces naan bread, warmed
  7. Check 1/4cup fresh cilantro sprigs
  8. Check lemon wedges, for serving

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 450° F. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with the curry powder, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Cook, in batches, skin-side down, until browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate; reserve the skillet.
  2. Add the okra to the drippings in the skillet and toss to coat. Nestle the chicken skin-side up in the okra and roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the leg (avoiding the bone) registers 165º F 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. Serve the chicken and okra with the naan, cilantro, and lemon wedges.
