Okay - this one was definitely a winner.  If I do say so myself...and the proof was in the husband going back for seconds (my usual food-hit/miss barometer!).  Even the kids scoffed it (another win/lose measure).  The beauty of this is you can throw everything in one dish and then into the oven and forget about it while you do more important things - like surf pinterest, flamenco dancing or ahem, REAL work!

PANTRY MUST HAVES
1 whole chicken cut into sections (or a selection of chicken pieces)
