This succulent chicken recipe is packed with antioxidants and takes just 20 minutes to prep. Chicken quarters are the whole leg with thigh and drumstick (or the breast with backbone and wing). If you like dark meat, this is a very healthy and flavorful way to prepare it. Try the same recipe with smaller cuts of chicken and omit the first 15 minutes of cooking time.
