Simple Roast Chicken

The simplest roast chicken recipe: you take a pare of chicken legs and any other chicken parts you like, cut into pieces not too big (for example, breast cut into 3 or 4 chunks) and season them with salt, pepper (fresh ground, black, because I like the little pepper dots on the product), italian herbs like rosemary and oregano (just a pinch) and a pew sprinkles of cayenne and/or paprika. Let it sit for a while in the fridge. Like minimum a half an hour.
Then chop up a few potatoes into not too small pieces, a yellow onion cut in length but not too small either, and 3 or four cloves of garlic (you guessed it) chopped not too small.
throw the vegetables into the cooking pot or tray and sprinkle about 2 tablespoons full of extra virgin olive oil, season with salt and pepper and mix until they are all shiny from the oil. Get the chicken parts and just put them on top of the potatoes, making sure that a few onion bits are left on top (for a wonderful charred finish).
For the maximum effect and taste I added a few strips of bacon on top of the chicken.
Cover the pot and bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes at medium, then uncover and bake another 15 minutes.
Get everything outta the oven and let sit for 10 minutes until serving. It's hot! Enjoy!
