A baked chicken leg coming from the oven smells so good when it is baking in the oven. You can see the juice dripping and sticking onto the aluminum foil. It just looks so tasty and good seeing it baking in the oven. If you keep an eye on the chicken legs, you can see the chicken legs changing into golden brown. I decided to bake the chicken legs to make them more tasty and delicious.
When cleaning the chicken legs, it is very simple than cleaning the whole chicken. When you get the hang of it, you will be fast in cleaning chicken legs. I marinated the chicken legs the night before to have a better floury taste. If you like, you can marinate the chicken legs the day you will eat them. I have the recipe on how to clean, marinate and bake the chicken legs.
Since the chicken legs are coming from a baked oven, kids and adults would love these chicken legs. The best combination with these chicken legs would be rice. The meat and the juice that you can mix in with the baked chicken.
Another way of eating these chicken legs is cutting off all the meat and making a chicken sandwich or a tortilla wrap chicken. Baked chicken legs can be an amazingly delicious dish to make. Try the recipe and enjoy.
