    1. Preheat oven to 220 C / Gas 7. Grease a large, deep roasting tin.
    2. Place chicken legs in prepared roasting tin. Stir potatoes, olive oil, juice of 1 lemon, basil, oregano, salt, pepper and lemon herb seasoning together in a large bowl to coat potatoes. Arrange potatoes around chicken in roasting tray. Pour about 3/4 of oil mixture over chicken, reserving remaining oil; drizzle remaining lemon juice over chicken and potatoes.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes; shake roasting tin to loosen potatoes, then continue baking for 15 minutes. Place green beans in reserved oil mixture; toss to coat. Remove chicken mixture from oven; pour green bean mixture over chicken and potatoes.
    4. Return tin to the oven; bake until green beans are tender with a bite, chicken is cooked through and juices run clear, about 15 minutes.


    If you want to crisp up the chicken and potatoes some more, place the roasting tin under a preheated grill for about 5 minutes.
