Chicken with sauce

Some of the best recipes I have are given to me from my family. This delicious dish was given to me from my mother in law. It is very easy to make and it goes very well with rice pilaf.

4 whole chicken legs
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 carrots cut lengthwise
2 celery cut lengthwise
1 can 12 onz tomato sauce
2 garlic
1 teaspoon oregano
salt and pepper

In a heavy sautee pan brown chicken in olive oil about four minutes each side add the garlic, carrots and celery. Sautee for another 2 minutes. Pour in the tomato sauce, 1/2 glass of water, oregano, salt and pepper. Stir together.

Preheat oven to 350
Place chicken with sauce into a baking dish. Cover with foil. Bake for 45 minutes. Remove foil bake for another 15 minutes.
