When it comes to chicken, we’re always looking for two things: golden crackly skin and juicy, flavorful meat. Enter: these roasted chicken legs. They’re all that and then some—the “some” being a sticky BBQ glaze that really takes ’em above and beyond. They’re served green beans, plus our new favorite spud side: fingerling potatoes that are roasted, smashed to create craggy edges, and roasted again with cheese until perfectly crispy, melty, and golden.

• Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil. Wash and dry produce (except green beans). • Pat chicken* dry with paper towels. Season all over with salt and pepper; drizzle each piece with olive oil and rub to coat. Place skin sides up on one side of prepared sheet. • Toss potatoes on empty side with a large drizzle of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast on top rack for 20 minutes (you’ll add more to the sheet then). • 4 SERVINGS: Adjust racks to top and middle positions. Spread chicken out across prepared sheet and toss potatoes on a separate, unlined sheet; roast chicken on top rack and potatoes on middle rack.
• Once chicken and potatoes have roasted 20 minutes, remove sheet from oven. • Carefully flatten potatoes with a spatula or heavy cup. Season with salt and pepper, then top with Monterey Jack. • Brush chicken with half the BBQ sauce (save the rest for serving). • Return to top rack until chicken is cooked through, potatoes are slightly crispy, and cheese has melted, 8-12 minutes more. • TIP: Push the potatoes closer together for more cheese coverage!
• When chicken and potatoes are almost done, pierce green bean bag with a fork; place bag on a plate. Microwave until tender, 1-2 minutes. • TIP: No microwave? No problem! Steam beans in a small pot with a splash of water until just tender, 5-7 minutes.
• Divide chicken, potatoes, and green beans between plates. Season green beans with salt and pepper. Top potatoes with smoky red pepper crema and serve with remaining BBQ sauce on the side for dipping.
