Steamed baby potatoes make a nice side dish.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Season chicken on all sides with salt. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat; swirl in oil. Add chicken and cook until browned, about 4 minutes a side. Transfer to a plate.

  • Add onion to skillet. Cook, scraping up browned bits, about 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in carrots and sauerkraut until well combined.

  • Transfer sauerkraut mixture to a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Nestle chicken legs in mixture, cover with parchment-lined foil, and bake 30 minutes. Uncover, increase heat to 425 degrees, and bake until top is lightly caramelized and a thermometer inserted into thickest part of chicken legs (without touching bone) registers 165 degrees, about 10 minutes more. Serve immediately.

I stumbled across this recipe when searching for a way to use up some sauerkraut. Although dubious I made it and it was very delicious and surprisingly light. I've now made it a second time, and kept the carrots and onions in large pieces/strips and it's a hit - highly recommend trying it out!
