"This is always a hit when I make it for dinner parties and Boxing Day dinner because the chicken is always fall-off-the-bone juicy and people love the glaze. People always go for seconds!
You may quarter 2 chickens instead if you aren't able to get just legs from your butcher, but I find the legs are juicier and save money. Serve this dish with fragrant rice and dilled carrots or roasted asparagus."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

large chicken legs
orange juice with pulp
unsalted butter, at room temperature
fresh rosemary, finely chopped
ground black pepper to taste
I gave this dish five stars for flavor and presentation. The aroma as it baked was heavenly wafting through the house. I boosted the oven temp to 375 for the first 30 minutes for the initial roasting, then reduced it to 325 until the drumsticks were done. There was a large amount of liquid in the pan that never cooked off, so I will reduce the honey, orange juice, and butter to half of what is called for the next time I make this. There would still be plenty of pan juices left for a thin gravy if desired. In the directions, I think that the butter should be melted first, then brought to room temperature. It will harden in the mixture when refrigerated, so it will be clumpy. All in all, a nice departure and a great way to use an inexpensive cut of chicken.
Not bad,but not as good as I was hoping.
This sounds yummy! I'm going to try boneless chicken thighs...and orange marmalade in lieu of oranges etc!
I cooked this for the first time today and it is awesome! My husband loves the sweetness of it! And this will be one of our favorite for dinner! I actually cooked the chicken in 350 skin down for the first 15mins then turn the skin up and cook it for another 40mins to 325 this time and rubbing the sauce on the skin every 20mins. Then I took all the juices and put some chicken broth butter,flour salt and pepper and made some gravy out of it! And it is perfect dinner in and hour!
My whole family loved this recipe and it was great for my daughter who is allergic to just about everything! I served it with rice. It was delicious and filling.
Too sweet for my taste.
It was delicious. I didn't use orange zest ,but used lemon zest. Family said it was finger licking good. Will be made for Rosh Hashannah. We did not find it too sweet at all. Use some sauce over chicken flavored rice and not a drop left.
