  • Place a rack in top third of oven; preheat to 375°F.

  • Arrange chicken legs (skin side up) in the center of pan; discard excess marinade.
  • Arrange potatoes around outside of pan in an even layer, then turn cut side down (this will help them brown better).

  • Roast until chicken and potatoes are golden brown and an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of chicken registers 165°F, 30–40 minutes.
  • Whisk garlic, lemon juice, whole grain mustard, and remaining 1/3 cup oil, 2 tsp. honey, and 1/2 tsp. salt in a small bowl.
  • Divide chicken and potatoes among plates, then arrange frisée and parsley alongside potatoes.
  • Drizzle dressing over chicken, potatoes, and frisée.
  • Do Ahead: Chicken can be marinated 8 hours ahead. Cover and chill.
