Directions

1. Season chicken legs with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. Allow to sit in a salad bowl while you’re prepping the other ingredients.

2. Heat a large pan or pot with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Sear chicken legs on all sides until crisp and golden, about 10 minutes.

3. Add garlic and red chili pepper flakes and give a quick stir. Deglaze with chicken stock and lime juice and bring to a gentle boil. Add a tablespoon honey and simmer on medium heat for 15 – 20 minutes, until liquid has reduced and chicken is cooked through.

4. Garnish with chopped parsley and lime slices. Serve immediately over rice or bulgur for soaking up the lemony sauce! Enjoy!
