Chicken legs are for grown-ups too!

Chicken legs are a simple weeknight dish and also good to make in large quantities for a party. 


I leave the skin on to keep the chicken moist during cooking when I bake them. If I cook on the stove, I will remove. 

Here I have fresh chicken legs that I have washed with apple cider vinegar. 


This was for adults only, so I used salt, pepper, roasted and ground chili peppers, grainy mustard, soy sauce, and worcestershire. 


Then I transferred into a bowl and left in the fridge and went to work. 

Then put onto a parchment lined baking sheet, not touching, and put it in the oven as soon as I turned it on–instead of waiting for it to preheat. 

On 350 for about 30 minutes, then turned it over, back in for about 30 more. Once I see it pull away from the bone, it’s done. 


Serve with your side dish of choice. Since the oven was on, I roasted vegetables. There are many flavor variations that work for this. I like baking it because you can be doing other things while the oven does the work. 

Make this on Sunday to be a weeknight timesaver!
