  • Total: 1 hr 20 min
  • Active: 10 min


4 skin-on, bone-in chicken drumsticks

4 skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs

1 whole skin-on, bone-in chicken breast, quartered (separate the breast and then cut each piece in half crosswise)

EVOO, for liberal drizzling

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper 

1 1/2 pounds baby potatoes

4 to 5 sprigs fresh rosemary, leaves stripped and chopped

2 small to medium onions, cut into thin wedges with the root ends attached

Handful fresh bay leaves

One 10-ounce box frozen artichoke hearts, thawed, drained and halved, or one 14-ounce can artichoke hearts, drained and halved

1 head garlic, cloves separated and crushed

1 lemon, sliced

1 cup dry white wine

1 bunch black kale or dinosaur kale, stemmed

Freshly grated nutmeg


  1. Drizzle the chicken with EVOO and liberally sprinkle with sea salt and pepper.
  2. In a roasting pan or baking dish, combine the potatoes, rosemary, onions, bay leaves, artichokes, garlic and lemons. Drizzle with about 1/4 cup EVOO, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Arrange the chicken on top of the vegetables.
  3. Position the rack on the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  4. Roast the chicken and vegetables for 45 minutes. Turn on the broiler and douse the pan with the wine. Broil until crispy and brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from the oven.
  5. Dress the kale very lightly with about 1 tablespoon EVOO and season with salt, pepper and a few gratings of nutmeg. Spread the kale on a wire rack set over a baking sheet. Broil until very crispy, about 10 minutes.
  6. Divide the kale among plates and top with the chicken and vegetables.

The chicken was great, nice and moist. I was disappointed in the vegetables, they should have been roasted and yummy but came out uncooked, limp and gray. I had my granddaughter start the food, when I get home from work it's almost 6PM my hubby is pacing like a tiger, I can't fool around with extending the cooking time. I recommend you take this out of the line-up; it doesn't work well.
