Orange roasted chicken leg quarters

Chicken leg quarters were on sale at the grocery store today.
I put together a simple citrus glaze and baked them up
into crispy orange basted chicken leg quarters perfection.
This recipe is easy to make and the chicken tastes great.

4 chicken leg quarters, skin on
1 large navel orange, sliced 1/4"
sprinkle of salt and pepper
4 tablespoons orange marmalade
Red hot pepper sauce, optional

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.br>
Arrange orange slices side by side in a roasting pan.
Place chicken on top of orange slices.
Season chicken with salt and pepper to taste.
Smear orange marmalade on top of chicken.
Sprinkle on some hot pepper sauce if desired.
Cover roasting pan and bake for 60 minutes.
Change oven to broil setting and uncover pan
Broil chicken until nicely browned on both sides.
Let chicken rest for a few minutes before serving
pouring juices from the roasting pan over chicken.
