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.
2 pounds chicken thighs and drumsticks
4 cloves garlic, crushed
2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
1 Tbsp. yellow mustard
1 Tbsp. ketchup
1 Tbsp. paprika
1 tsp. cumin
Salt and black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 420 degrees F.
In a large bowl toss and coat the chicken with all the ingredients, wrap well with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes; arrange chicken in baking sheet on cookie rack.
Place in oven and roast for about 40-45 minutes or until they are crispy golden brown.
Serve with salad, pasta or mashed potatoes.
