whole chicken legs

are harmed in the making of today's recipe. I modified a recipe from The Pioneer Woman, I made her spicy roasted chicken legs. The original recipe can be found here. However, i modified it and i'll give you my modified recipe instead :)

12 whole Chicken Legs
1.5 sticks Butter
Your Favorite Seasonings (i did chopped garlic, chili powder, pepper, salt, and basil)
1/8 cups Lemon Juice (or To Taste)

Melt butter in a saucepan. Pour lemon juice (fresh or bottled). Now add your seasonings. Stir it together until combined. Taste test to make sure its good, add what its missing.

Rinse your chicken legs. With metal tongs, transfer them one by one into the butter mixture and place on a baking sheet. Once all of the chicken legs are coated and on the baking rack, take a pastry brush and give them one last coating of the butter mixture. Sprinkle them with some more of your seasonings.

Place them into a 400-degree oven for 30 minutes, or until the thermometer reads the right temp for chicken.

Yum!!!! I had to put mine in for about 50 minutes, cuz my oven isn't quite whole...its missing one of the panels so heat escapes pretty easily.

I put LOTS of chili powder on 4 of them, for TJ. TJ and C's lil sister S is over while their dad and C put insulation upstairs so that the upstairs can be finished and TJ can move up there :D Life around here'll be happier when TJ is upstairs - he'll be happy and then I can hang out with him more :) (if the girl aint happy, aint nobody happy...ya know?) Now all that needs to be done is painting (white) and carpeting and then MOVE IN DAY :D
