Steps to prepare baked chicken legs
Once you have all the ingredients at our fingertips we can start with making the seasoning or dressing for our chicken legs. So you will peel the garlic cloves and then place them in a blender, also, add the olive oil, parsley, salt ,and pepper, to taste, and we proceed to blend all these ingredients together.
After this, we wash the legs very well, place them in a baking dish and then spread the dressing all over the legs. Let ithe legs marinate for about 30 minutes.
Next we add the lemon juice and the white wine on top. Preheat the oven to medium heat, that is, to about 190° C. Once the oven is at temperature put the baking dish in the center of the oven. Bake the chicken legs for about a hour or so. The chicken should have a golden brown color and the meat slightly pulling away from the bone. Let’s not forget to check our chicken occasionally. About halfway through cooking turn the chicken legs over so that they can cook and brown well on both sides.
And that is how the recipe for delicious baked chicken legs is made. Super easy, right? Depending on your tastes, you can accompany this meal with a salad, a soup, steamed potatoes or any side of your choice. We hope you enjoy it!
