  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil, for cooking
  • 1 tablespoon


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/gas 6. Season the chicken legs with salt and pepper. Heat an ovenproof braising pan or roasting tray on top of the stove with some olive oil and lay in the chicken, skin-side down. Fry for a few minutes until golden brown before turnin
