The simple marinade adds so much flavour it’s worth buying a bottle of white balsamic: You’ll want to make this again and again.


Ingredients

  • 6 garlic cloves , minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 bell peppers , cut into 8 wedges each
  • 1 onion , cut into thin wedges
  • 4 chicken legs
  • 2 skin-on, bone-in chicken breasts , cut in half crosswise
  • 4 chicken wings

Instructions

  • POSITION racks in top and bottom thirds of oven. Preheat to 375F. Line 2 large baking sheets with foil.
  • STIR garlic with oil, vinegar, paprika and salt in a large bowl. Season with fresh pepper. Add peppers and onions. Toss until coated. Arrange vegetables in an even layer on a prepared sheet. Add chicken to remaining garlic mixture in bowl, tossing to coat. Arrange chicken legs and breasts on the second prepared sheet. Place wings with vegetables.
