Spare Ribs and Chicken Bake – Adapted from Nigella Lawson

There are reasons one takes time to cook a meal. There is a reason that time is taken to let the marinade seep in to leave a memory of taste. The joy of watching the smiles and the sticky fingers and reaching for just one more piece just because; because it is fun and oh so delicious. That is the reason for cooking.


12 pork spare ribs
6 chicken legs and thighs
1 cup apple juice
4 tbs. maple syrup
2 tbs. soy sauce
2 tbs. olive oil
½ tsp. cloves
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
6 cloves garlic (unpeeled)

Combine all of the above in a large bowl and toss.

Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least one to two hours or up to over night.

You may also place this in a zip-lock freezer bag.

Preheat Oven 400 degrees:

Place the entire ingredients in a baking pan.  You may need to use two baking pans.

Place in oven and bake for approximate 90 minutes.

Remove from oven and let sit for a minute.

Serve with your favorite sides.

Enjoy with Love,
