Serves: 8 

  • 16 whole chicken legs
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 8 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons onion shallot, finely diced
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, finely diced
  • 4 tablespoons parsley, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons rosemary, chopped
  • 1/2 cup white wine

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:1hour5min  ›  Ready in:1hour15min 

  1. Preheat oven to 220 degrees C.
  2. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Melt the butter in a baking dish large enough to hold the chicken in one layer. Turn the legs in the butter until well coated, then arrange skin side down. Bake 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a bowl combine the bread crumbs, shallots, garlic, parsley, thyme and rosemary.
  4. After 30 minutes, turn the chicken skin side up and sprinkle with the bread crumb mixture. Bake another 30 minutes. Pour the wine into the pan (not over the chicken) and bake 5 more minutes.
