  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons 100% pure honey
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons orange zest
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons pure ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons sweet smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 6 skin-on whole chicken legs
  • 3 medium zucchini, cut diagonally into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 medium bulbs fennel, quartered into wedges
  • 2 medium oranges, sliced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 1/3 cup coarsely chopped pistachios (optional)


  1. In large bowl, whisk together orange juice, oil, mustard, honey, zest, coriander, salt, pepper, paprika and turmeric. Divide chicken into 2 large zip-top plastic bags; place zucchini, fennel and orange slices into separate large zip-top plastic bag. Evenly pour orange juice mixture into each bag; seal bags pressing out excess air. Massage ingredients in bags to coat with marinade; refrigerate 3 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 425°. Evenly spread chicken mixture, skin side up, onto large rimmed baking pan; evenly spread zucchini mixture onto second large rimmed baking pan. Roast chicken and vegetables 45 minutes or until internal temperature of chicken reaches 165° and vegetables are tender.
  3. Transfer chicken and vegetables to large serving plate; cover to keep warm. Pour off fat from drippings in chicken pan; place chicken pan across 2 burners. Add vegetable pan drippings and wine to chicken pan; heat to simmering over medium heat, stirring frequently to remove browned bits from bottom of pan. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 5 minutes or until slightly reduced.
  4. Serve chicken and vegetables sprinkled with parsley, mint and pistachios, if desired, along with pan juices.

    When I click on the printer icon to the right of “Ingredients”, all that prints is the color photo of the dish. It would be more helpful if “Ingredients” and “Directions” would print. Tried this is IE, Firefox, and Chrome and same problem all around.
