Roast Chicken Leg With All'Arrabiata Spice And Yoghurt

All'Arrabbiata spice is used in italian pasta sauce . Arriabiata means "angry style", named as such due to the heat of the peppers. It is an Italian hot spice that consists of hot crushed pepper, dried garlic, dried tomatoes, carrots, celery, salt  , parsley and dried mushrooms .  

Piggy Cuz gave me a packet of this spice a month ago. At first I didn't know what to do with them . I searched the internet on how to use it.  After reading up on it ,  I decided to use it to marinade the chicken legs and roast them for our dinner.  Great explosive flavor and every mouthful of the roast tasted so good that I will use them again and oneday when the Piggies are back I will cook as pasta sauce for them . Seriously, it makes a good marinade on meat . I just discovered that it is a great complement for meat besides  pasta :)  Thanks Piggy Cuz for this magic portion !

It is peppery hot and it's fragrance , really is a killer . Every mouthful of this flavorful roast will take you back ito an Italian kitchen. The spice is so authentic ...I will ask Joanna to get me a few packets when she goes for her Euro tour coming October :)  I love Italian herbs and now I am in love their spices too..... this roast is so good that I want to make this again . All I did was to rub this arrabiata spice on the meat and add plain yoghurt and chopped fresh rosemary and marinate the chicken legs for 1/2 hour. Drizzle olive oil on them and roast for 35-40 minutes at 200ºC till the golden brown and cooked.

this arrabiata spice will reminds you of an italian home....
it smells so good and it taste even better.....

just rub the spice all over the chicken legs, add yoghurt and
chopped rosemary and leave it to marinate for
at least 1/2 hour...before roasting

line the baking tray with aluminium foil before roasting
at 200ºC for 35-40 minutes

Half way thru roasting , add in the baby carrots and sprinkle
dried mixed herbs and salt and olive oil on the baby carrots
Roast baby carrots are good accompaniment for roasts
any kind of in vit A and it is flavorful with the
mixed herbs sprinkled on them ....
