Tender Oven Baked Chicken Legs

Tender Oven Baked chicken M

These oven baked chicken legs are so versatile and are a great base for spices.  They are inexpensive, easy to make and taste great!!! They do not require much hands-on time, at all. You can marinate them a day in advance.  Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, wrap well with plastic wrap and refrigerate; bake when you ready.  It’s that easy.

 

***(By placing on the cookie rack the excess fat will drip onto the bottom of the pan allowing the skin to crisp up.) ***I highly recommend wrapping a baking sheet in tin foil so you don’t have a ton of clean up when you are finished.

    I’m actually still waiting for these to finish in the oven. I had some extra marinade so I coated some mushrooms with it and used the leftover breading from the side of okra I have going and fried up the marinaded mushrooms and OH my goodness, SO delicious. So, THANK YOU for that! I’ll definitely be using this again!

    I’m not very fond of chicken legs or thighs, but this recipe sure changed my taste for them. Delicious. A keeper in my book. And I love the idea of baking them on a cookie rack. Great idea.
