With only five ingredients, this dinner is both incredibly simple and amazingly delicious!
0 hours 40 mins
8 small chicken legs (about 1½ lbs)
Kosher salt and pepper
1 red onion, sliced (leave root intact)
1 1/4 lb. broccoli crowns, cut into florets
1 tbsp. chili garlic paste (we used sambal oelek), plus more for serving
1 tbsp. olive oil
Heat broiler. Pat chicken dry and season with 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper. Place chicken legs and onion on a rimmed baking sheet and broil until browned, about 9 to 10 minutes. Remove baking sheet from oven and reduce oven temperature to 450°F.
While chicken broils, in a large bowl, toss broccoli with chili paste and oil.
Transfer broccoli to a second rimmed baking sheet and roast along with chicken until vegetables are golden brown and tender and chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes.
Halve a lime and squeeze juice over chicken. Finely grate zest of other lime on top, then cut into wedges. Drizzle chicken with additional chili paste if desired and serve with lime wedges.
