With skin that crisps beautifully and meat that stays juicy, chicken legs are an inexpensive cut that’s ideal for roasting.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oven to 425° F with a rack in the highest position.

Step 2

Toss the tomatoes, olives, garlic, oil, and thyme in a 3-quart baking dish.

Step 3

Season the chicken with 1 teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Nestle the chicken, skin-side up, in the vegetables.

Step 4

Bake until the chicken is browned and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest leg (avoiding the bone) registers 165° F, 40 to 45 minutes. Serve warm.
