In a large roasting tin, mix the potatoes, beetroot, carrots, onion and garlic.
Drizzle over the olive oil and pour over the wine, and tuck the thyme in between the vegetables. Season well with salt and pepper.
Season the chicken legs all over with salt and pepper and lay them on top of the vegetables. Cover loosely with foil and bake in the oven for 15 mins.
Remove the foil from the tin and return to the oven. Bake for a further 20-25 mins or until the chicken is golden and crisp and the vegetable are cooked through.
You could use any cuts of chicken you like. Breast is more expensive but thighs and wings are cheaper and just as tasty too.
