Roasted Chicken Legs

leg quarters

My local grocery store recently had 10 pound bags of chicken leg quarters on sale for $5.00 so I grabbed a couple and put them in the freezer. I love chicken legs because they can be done so many ways and are easy to cook. This is my recipe for roasted chicken leg quarters.


5 chicken leg quarters

1 cup buttermilk

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp cayenne pepper

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp garlic powder


1. Pour the buttermilk into a bowl and add some salt and pepper to taste.

2. Place the chicken legs in a large resealable plastic bag and pour the buttermilk into the bag.

3. Marinate for 3-4 hours.

4. Mix the seasonings in a small bowl.

5. Remove the chicken legs from the buttermilk and shake off the excess.

6. Place them on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.

7. Top each leg with the seasoning rub, allow to sit for 20 minutes.

8. Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes-1 hour.

Serve with your favorite sides! Enjoy!
