Preparation time:10 minutes Cooking time:45 minutes Total time:55 minutes

Serves: 4 Ingredients

4 British chicken legs, trimmed of excess fat
2-3 leeks, trimmed and sliced (about 350g prepared weight) 150g essential Waitrose Green Grapes, halved
4 rosemary sprigs
100ml fresh chicken stock (or white wine or water) Squeeze lemon juice

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Preheat a large ovenproof pan or casserole over a medium-high heat. Season the chicken legs and add to the pan, skin-side down. Fry for 10 minutes until golden. Turn and cook for 2-3 minutes on the underside.
