Leg Quarters

4 chicken leg quarters (skin-on with bone)
1 tablespoon paprika (smoked)
1 tablespoon salt (I use kosher)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoons black pepper
8 red potatoes (small)
2 carrots large(diced)
To make the wet rub combine all the spices in a small bowl and add the oil. *Save some of the rub for the vegetables.
Pat dry the chicken and then proceed to rub the mixture on the chicken. I use my hands but you can use gloves if it is more comfortable for you. With my fingers, I go inside the skin to season the whole chicken leg quarter.
Once your meat is coated with the wet rub, place them in a baking sheet and bake them in the oven for about 40 minutes to an hour at a 400-degree Fahrenheit.
Cut all the vegetables and place them in a baking pan. Using the rest of the seasoning add that to the vegetables. Place them in the oven after the chicken has cooked for about 20 to 25 minutes because these vegetables will not take long to cook. You can definitely cook the chicken and the vegetables together if you’d like. I just like my vegetables to be firm.
