Roasted Chicken Leg Quarters

Roasted Chicken Leg Quarters

Roasted Chicken Leg QuarterDark meat chicken, is the best chicken! I just love dark meat and crispy skin on my chicken. Shoot, most of the time I just want the skin!

Chicken leg quarters (leg & thigh) have become one of my favorite cuts of the bird and I love to roast it in the oven. It’s not only delicious, but it’s so incredibly easy.

Here’s my recipe for the perfect crispy skin and moist tender chicken with a kick of spice.
