Ingredients  you need for Oven Baked Chicken legs

  • Chicken: I have used bone-in Chicken legs for maximum flavor. You can also use Bone-in Chicken thighs or Chicken leg quarters. Bone-in Chicken thigh takes a little longer to cook than boneless, so the vegetables also get enough time to get cooked.
  • Vegetable: I have used potato and Carrot here. You can also use Zucchini, pepper etc.  Add hard root vegetables along with chicken, but throw in softer veggies midway, to avoid overcooking.
  • Garlic: Well I am a little obsessed with garlic, the more the better. You can add some whole cloves of garlic which will add more flavor to the pan juice.
  • Wine: Again for a flavourful pan sauce. You can substitute with chicken stock.
  • Butter: Love rich buttery pan sauce??? Butter keeps the meat moist and flavourful. You can also swap butter with Olive oil for a healthier version.
  • Ranch Seasoning:  You don’t need dozens of spices, use good quality ranch seasoning or a homemade one here.
  • Paprika: For an extra kick, I like to add paprika. You can skip it if you want.

Notes

  1.  Use skinless drumsticks in this recipe. Vegetables when baked tend to lose moisture. Chicken with the skin doesn’t really get crispy when there is a lot of moisture.

    My family and I really enjoyed this meal. Thanks for the recipe

      Thank you for giving it a try.

  2. Made a double batch the other night. Accidentally poured red wine instead of white and it still turned out great. Also used minced garlic in a jar in place of garlic cloves and added to marinade and that worked well. A forgiving recipe. The vegetables were tasty as was the chicken legs.

    1. Subhasmita says:

      Good know that Red wine worked for the recipe. Next time when I make it might use red wine instead white. 🙂

  3. Angela Beuden says:

    Loved this recipe. Could you substitute the chicken with sausages?

    1. Subhasmita says:

      Thank you for the feedback. I guess sausage would work also, but you might have to adjust the baking time.
