Expert Tips

Those fresh little pearl onions can be time-consuming to peel, so using the frozen thawed ones saves you a lot of time. If you don't have pearl onions in the freezer, you can slice and use a large yellow or white onion.

Serve all that wonderfully flavored sauce spooned over the chicken legs. Tuck a perky sprig of fresh tarragon or rosemary next to the chicken, or sprinkle a little chopped fresh parsley over the top for that special touch.
