Chicken quarters are inexpensive, juicy cuts of deliciousness. Consisting of a leg and a thigh, they have skin that can be pan seared, or taken off to make them healthier.
Seasoning with a garlicky, salty dry rub on top of a very thin layer of garlic oil adds a finish to the chicken. Spice it up by adding some cayenne pepper or sweeten them up with some brown sugar or cinnamon.
