Anyone hungry for some finger lickin’ lemon chicken legs? (say that five times fast!) I know my boys were the other night at 5pm when dinner was looming and I had no idea what to make. I asked what they wanted and was greeted with a chanting chorus of Chick-en! Chick-en! They love these legs and Nick even proclaims them one of his all time favorite meals.
Chicken legs are a great “fast” dinner for those nights when you don’t feel like putting a lot of work into cooking. And not only are they fast, but they’re cheap as well. I’ve had to start cooking a double batch of legs for one meal because my boys love them so much that they each want two (I’m terrified of how many I’ll have to cook when they hit the teenage years) and even cooking 10-12, I still stay under $4 for the meat. Not bad for a family of five if you ask me.
Here’s what you’ll need in order to cook these beauties up (don’t mind the extra legs, I doubled the recipe to make enough for my hungry family of boys):
