Here is a simple one-dish wonder from Jamie Oliver's Jamie's Dinners: The Essential Family Cookbook that will have your guests crying out for more.
Preheat your oven to 350 F. Season your chicken pieces all over and put them into a snug-fitting pan in one layer. Add all the basil leaves and stalks, then add tomatoes. Scatter the garlic cloves into the pan with the chopped chili and drizzle over some olive oil. Mix around a bit, pushing the tomatoes underneath.
Place in the oven for 1 1/2 hours, turning the tomatoes halfway through, until the chicken skin is crisp and the meat falls off the bone. Skim any excess fat from the pan and squeeze the garlic out of the skins before serving.
Use bone-in chicken pieces or chicken thighs if you cannot find chicken legs.
