Pre-heat the oven to 200°C.

Arrange the chicken legs in a glass roasting dish. Tuck the orange, rosemary and olives in and around the chicken. Drizzle with the olive oil and honey.

Season well and roast for 45-60 minutes until the juice runs clear when a thigh is pierced at its thickest part. Remove and allow to sit for a few minutes before serving.
