When I roast a chicken it’s a sure thing that my kids are going to fight over the chicken legs.
I don’t know if it’s because kids just like eating with their hands or if it’s because chicken legs are delicious, but it happens without fail every time.
I don’t roast a whole chicken all that often, since everyone seems to want the legs anyway. I make these baked chicken drumsticks instead and everyone is happy!
My baked chicken drumsticks recipe is simple enough that anyone can do this and it creates juicy chicken, crispy skin, and it’s all perfectly seasoned! You’re going to love this one.
Seasoning for chicken legs:
These oven baked chicken legs are super simple and the seasoning blend is perfect!Sprinkle on the seasoning and seal the bag. Smush it all together to coat the chicken in the spices and then dump the chicken out onto a greased baking sheet.
2 pounds chicken drumsticks
2 tablespoons avocado oil
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon chopped parsley
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cracked pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray.
Add all of the ingredients to a large zip top bag and seal. Smush the chicken around in the bag to coat in the seasoning.
Arrange chicken on the baking sheet and bake for 40-45 minutes or until a thermometer reads 165 degrees.
My kids enjoy dipping their chicken legs in ranch dressing!
