I advise you not to postpone and today to cook the most delicious chicken legs with vegetables: a full-fledged dish that will give you a feeling of satiety for a long time. I madly love various recipes with chicken legs, but this one is one of my favorite: you can add vegetables and seasonings to your taste, experiment with different spices. The chicken leg is tender, but it has a golden crust and keeps its shape perfectly. Vegetables do not boil at all, they are practically steamed due to the lack of a large amount of liquid. I advise you to definitely cook this stunning dish.

The most delicious chicken legs with vegetables. Step by step recipe
- Let's start with the preparation of chicken legs. Wash them thoroughly under running water. Wipe with a paper kitchen towel. You can replace a paper towel with a kitchen waffle, it absorbs moisture well. We just need to get them wet. Next, look at the shin and cut off the excess pieces of cartilage and hanging skin. Put them on a dish and set it aside.
- If the size of the shank pieces is different, use a sharp knife to make a recess in large pieces. So that everything is cooked at the same time.
- Send the shins into a deep bowl. Add seasoning for chicken legs. Seasoning can be replaced with salt and pepper. You can also add to them all kinds of other spices that you have available and to your taste. Pour a tablespoon of vegetable oil, and mix everything thoroughly.
- In a deep pan with a thick bottom, pour vegetable oil (refined). You can use whatever you have or what you love. I prefer to fry in sunflower oil.
- We send chicken legs to well-heated oil. Do not cover. Reduce the heat a little and let it fry well on one side. Then turn to the other side.
- While everything is fried, cut the onions in half rings. And put it in a pan to the legs.
- Now peel the potatoes, cut it into small pieces: cut it like a roast. The pieces should be medium in size. When the onions are fried, we put all the potatoes into the pan.
- Then wash and peel the bell peppers from the stalk and seeds. Cut it in half and put in a pan. If you want, you can cut it into four parts.
- We will also do with tomatoes. Wash and cut into two halves. We send to the pan.
- Since our vegetables are not salted or peppered yet, we add salt and pepper to our liking.
- Then we pour 200 milliliters of water, cover with a lid. Reduce the fire to a minimum. In this way, we achieve the effect of a steam bath for vegetables. Do not add more water.
- Check potato readiness. We pierce it with a knife. If the potatoes are ready, turn off the stove and remove the pan to the side.
- We spread in portions: on each plate a piece of pepper, potato, tomato and chicken leg. Garnish with finely chopped greens. We serve everything to the table.
