Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees with rack in upper third. Scatter chickpeas and peppers in the bottom of a shallow, broilerproof 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Stir together butter, hot sauce, paprika, and pepper brine. Season with salt. Place chicken on top of chickpea mixture and brush both sides with all of butter mixture; season with salt and pepper. Roast, skin-side up, until chicken begins to brown and a thermometer inserted into thickest parts (not touching bones) reads 160 degrees, 25 to 30 minutes.

  • Switch oven to broil. Brush chicken with pan drippings and broil until skin is charred in spots, 2 to 3 minutes. Lightly dress watercress with squeezed lemon and pan drippings. Serve chicken-chickpea mixture with watercress, flatbread, and lemon.
