Chicken legs are a staple in my menus. I mean, hello – they are cheap! And, I’m all about some frugal eats! I can buy a ton of them for next to nothing.
When I do it up chicken leg style, this recipe is my all-time go-to method to cook them. These are what you call finger lickin’ good.
Obviously – we’re going to start off with some chicken legs… You need about 2 pounds, roughly. You don’t have to be exact – a little more or a little less will work just fine. You will want to remove the skin from the legs. Using a sharp knife, cut a few scores into the meaty portion of each leg.
Yes, one of my chicken legs is broken. It was badly behaved though so trust me when I say it was deserved…. 😉
Whisk together your brown sugar & spices along with 1/2 cup olive oil.
Place the chicken legs in a gallon sized ziploc bag, and then dump the spice liquid on in. Yes, spice liquid – my cooking terminology is impressive.
Marinate for 30 minutes.
Throw the chicken legs into a 9×13 casserole dish. Ok, so maybe not actually throw it in there… get it in there minus the whole throwing part.
Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.
When they’re done, you’ll be super happy you found this recipe and you will love me forever. Ok? Ok.
