Garlic Roasted Chicken

A fairly simple recipe, pretty much a variant of this recipe here, with a few modifications of my own, particularly the spice-to-chicken ratio.


  • 2 chicken leg quarters
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning (oregano, basil, thyme, etc.)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1/8 cup water


  • Mix chili powder, Italian seasoning, cumin, salt and pepper with oil.
  • Add minced garlic and mix under it takes the form of a "paste".
  • Using a knife, add shallow cuts/slits to the chicken quarters to improve the marination process.
  • Rub the marinade onto the chicken quarters (I marinated the chicken about 2-3 hours before cooking).
  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking tray with aluminum foil. Place the chicken quarters onto the tray.
  • Mix the water and soy sauce and pour over the chicken quarters in the baking tray.
  • Bake for about 30-40 minutes.

There are endless sides that could be chosen with the Garlic Roasted Chicken; for tonight's dinner, I chose baked potato, cherry tomatoes and assorted veggies.
