Oven Fried Chicken Legs

Delicious and Simple
You won’t miss fried chicken when you oven-fry these chicken legs!

I made these yummy legs for the first time last night. I meant to take a photo right after they came out of the oven. I forgot! By the time I remembered, we had already eaten four chicken legs. That’s why there are only two legs in the photo below, instead of six.

The photo to the right is of my three-year-old grandson, Tristan.  You can see how large these chicken legs were. They took an hour to fully cook. 🙂

Purchasing legs and wings are more economical than purchasing whole organic chickens. (Although, if you totally use the entire chicken by making Almost Free Bone Soup, Click Here for the recipe, you’ll get your money’s worth.)

You’ll want to try Nonna’s Hot Chicken Wings as well. Although, finding organic chicken wings can be challenging. Legs may be substituted for the wings. They are equally delicious and you’ll get more meat. Click Here for the recipe.

Costco and other places sell organic legs. These came six to a pack.
