Simple Chicken Dinner

At the suggestion of my younger daughter tonight I cooked chicken legs for dinner, they were marinated with Meyer lemons that I grow in my backyard. I zested and juiced the lemons into a bowl along with the chicken legs. Crushed garlic and extra virgin olive oil is mixed in as well. While the chicken sits and absorbs the flavors I make a side dish of shaved brussel sprouts that are cooked with sliced onions and chopped bacon, as this slowly cooks I preheat a cast iron grill pan for the chicken. When the pan is hot the legs go in and cook till golden brown and crispy. It all comes together on a plate and is perfect with a nice glass of white wine.
