1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
2. In a roasting pan, place the chicken legs, scrubbed potatoes, unpeeled cloves of garlic, and lemon. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.
3. In a small bowl, combine the oil and herbs. Rub onto the chicken and potatoes.
4. Bake uncovered at 400°F for 45 minutes. Cover the pan, reduce heat to 350°F, and bake for an additional 1 to 1½ hours, or until an inserted meat thermometer shows an internal temperature of 165°F.
If Herbes de Provence isn’t available, you can make your own by mixing equal parts dried basil, rosemary, thyme, marjoram, and savory.
