Chicken legs are kids approved meal at our house. I have had times when my swimming son will eat five chicken legs in one sitting. These spicy garlic baked chicken legs are fun to eat and full of flavor. The bonus to this chicken recipe is it is also perfect for people on low-carb or keto diets as well.
On Day 4 of the 30 days of #FarmsMatter, I am reminded why chicken farms are a gift from God.
You see, I grew up gathering eggs at my grandparent's house. And then butchering said chickens. When the chicken raising ended, I was sure I would never have to butcher a chicken again. WrONg! My dad then thought it would be a good idea to get a flock of chickens. That would require butchering. Let's just say, I am grateful for Perdue and Tyson and all the other chicken farms for raising and processing the chickens that I can just buy at Kroger.
Spicy Garlic Baked Chicken Legs Ingredients
Chicken Drumsticks are the go-to chicken choice in our house when we eat chicken. I prefer dark meat any day of the week and of course, the kids prefer eating legs over thighs! So, these packages literally can disappear quickly. The quickest recipe I have for baked chicken legs, of course, involves a few of my favorite ingredients.
- Chicken legs
- hot salt
- Italian herbs
How to Make Spicy Baked Chicken Drumsticks
Once you have the butter melted, garlic added, follow up with hot salt and pasta sprinkle or some Italian herbs you have on hand. Then dip your legs in the butter. Dredge it in the butter and place on a jelly roll pan lined in foil. Then pour any extra over the top of the legs.
Then, because I am obsessed with garlic, I hit the chicken with some roasted garlic and herbs seasoning.
Then roast the legs on 425 degrees for 25 minutes or till the juices run clear.
The legs are juicy, spicy and with a crunchy outer shell. There is something about crispy skin that makes it totally irresistible.
Nothing pairs with chicken legs like macaroni and cheese, so go ahead and go make some of the microwavable pasta in the last 12 minutes the chicken is cooking.

Of course you do realize that the chickens your grandparents raised were highly superior to the sad fowl that Purdue and Tyson "raise" in their tiny dark boxes? Bending their legs to fit more animals in, and adding chemicals to "disinfect" the meat of sick and dying hens? It's cruel and sick, not to mention incredibly harmful to your health, and the planet. People like you are the reason america is fat, sick, and dying. I pray to god you'll realize the truth one day. I will be praying for you and the rest of the "real farm" housewives (a true oxymoron) to wake up. The truth will set you free.
#farmsmatter. Ha. Sponsored post or not, I doubt you realize the true irony of your words. Last I checked, farm didn’t mean “a multi-acre warehouse where animals are biologically manufactured (yes, “manufactured” like furniture)”.
While I agree with what Melania said about the terrible quality of Tyson and Perdue and other supermarket chicken, I don't agree with the condescending way she said it. Thanks for the recipe, but I highly suggest free roaming, humanely treated chicken! There are tons of resources to educate ourselves on the quality of today's mass produced and genetically modified foods.
Wow.. Really? All that self righteous crap over a recipe? Come on.. Anyway.. Thanks for the recipe, I've been looking for a new way to do chicken legs and this looks amazing! One thing though.. What is hot salt? Sounds intriguing..
I have a question. I want to make this in the same pan with veggies, but my husband is not home tonight and I have zumba tomorrow night my question is...... can I make this up tonight (get already to be baked) and have my husband put it in the oven tomorrow evening?
Looks and sounds delicious. Love spicy chicken. Thanks for sharing.

When I create my logo at the pixel count specified in the theme options, it still looks gritty at 72 dpi. Any clues? Also, how do I create a default “Home” button like you have on the demo that navigates back to the home page? And why do your selected page buttons maintain the “indented/selected” look when selected?
At last, someone comes up with the "right" answer!

Hmmmm I have all those ingredients but the sun warrior. Do you know a substitute for it? Or do you think it could be made without it? Pics look soooo yummy.
The Night Circus is for everyone… except me. The writing was pretty, sure, but the mood, tone and imagery got stale after a while when not tempered with A) much of a plot or B) interesting characters. It was a huge, huge disappointment for me and by the end I barely wanted to finish it.
