Time to cook
Greek inspired one-dish chicken
4 cloves of garlic sliced or grated
1 Fennel sliced thinly
1 kg potatoes, peeled and cubed
Garnish: black olives, parsley and sliced spring onions (optional)
1/3 cup of Olive oil
1/4 cup of water
1/4 cup of lemon juice (freshly sqeezed)
2 tsp sea-salt
1/2 tsp of freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp oregano
1 sprig of fresh thyme (remove before serving)
2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp paprika
Place the chicken legs in baking pan together with potato cubes, fennel slices and the garlic cloves.
Combine all spices in a small bowl and mix well.
bake for 45 minutes. Then turn up your oven to 225 degrees and add 15 minutes baking time. At this point you can add the olives if you prefer them warm.
You can add a salad- i used a fennel slice salad with oranges, lemon juice, 1 tsp of cumin seeds and walnuts. make it a couple of hours beforehand and leave in the fridge. That way you add the texture, but stay within the range of taste.
