Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

On the table today is my 3 flavor baked chicken legs! A quick and easy way to spice up the typical 9 piece chicken leg package if you don't want to fry them. I took some inspiration from Buffalo wings, and who doesn't like those!? We have Garlic Parmesan, BBQ, and Lemon Pepper! Talk about adding some choice and variety without much extra work. So, without further the kitchen!

NON EDIBLES: Roasting dish or baking pan, tin foil, bear hands

EDIBLES: 9 chicken legs (usually they come 9 to a package in the frozen section)
Salt and Pepper
Veggie oil
Parmesan Cheese
Garlic salt
BBQ sauce
Tony Chachere (you know the stuff) Chilli Powder
Lemon juice
Lemon pepper

Defrost the chicken and preheat your oven to 350*. For less cleanup, just place your thawed legs directly on the baking pan. Toss some salt and pepper over the chicken to taste. Now, the first two you'll brush with some olive oil and then sprinkle with the parmesan and garlic salt (garlic pepper or garlic powder works as well). The next two slather with your favorite BBQ sauce (Heinz makes a good one) and some exta pepper, Tony's, and a bit of chilli power. And the last two add your lemon pepper and douse with some lemon juice. Put just a small amount of water in the bottom of the pan to keep moist and cove with tin foil. Cook for 45 minutes to an hour, it's very important the chicken gets done.

And its a meal! I like to serve this with some rice and veggies. Yummy. Chicken is a pretty blank slate flavor wise which maks it so versatile so don't be afraid to bring the flavor! Happy cooking!
