2. In a large bowl, toss chicken with curry powder, salt, pepper, and olive oil until well coated.

3. Warm a large skillet over medium-high heat and place chicken in it skin-side down. Cook for 3 minutes or until crispy and some fat has rendered out.

4. Flip chicken over so it’s skin-side up in the skillet then transfer to the oven and roast for 16 to 18 minutes or until cooked through with an internal temperature of 165°F degrees..

5 Remove from oven then let rest for 5 minutes before adding to a serving platter with greens spooning some of the liquid from pan over top (or serve right from skillet).

6 Add lemon wedges around and garnish with fresh herbs and thinly sliced green onion if desired
