Quick and Easy Baked Chicken 

I have been wanting chicken for a few weeks and I finally decided to whip up some simple baked chicken legs!

This is a super easy way to make chicken in the oven and it turns out delicious. The skin does have a little crispness to it, which I love. 

I enjoy making fried chicken, but frankly I don’t always have time for all the steps now that Clay is here. He loves his attention and I don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen!

My husband doesn’t like meat on the bone so I made these to eat for lunches during the week for myself. I was shocked at how cheap bone-in chicken was.

Easy Baked Chicken Legs Recipe with Ingredients

This was a third of the cost of what we would pay for boneless chicken breasts! I think I paid around $3 for this pack of chicken – I about passed out! I am used to paying so much more, it was a nice surprise. I just stored the leftover chicken in the fridge and it was good reheated. 

A chicken leg makes an excellent lunch, especially when all I have to do is heat it up!

Simple Baked Chicken Recipe

This is getting to be my favorite recipe for low-stress weeknight dinners. It’s truly an easy recipe that takes very little prep time (about 5 minutes) which is nice on nights you might not have a lot of time!

Pair these baked chicken drumsticks with some steamed veggies, rice or whatever your family enjoys! I will be making this for sure here and there for myself for quick lunches! You can also use other chicken pieces, such as bone-in chicken breasts or chicken thighs – I just prefer drumsticks.

Lawrys Garlic Salt with Parsley Bottle

One of the keys to making this easy recipe so tasty is the garlic salt with parsley. I think the very best one is the Lawry’s Garlic Salt with Parsley. Besides using it on a chicken drumstick, it adds extra flavor to so many things. I love to sprinkle it on frozen pizzas or on garlic bread.


I was going to also share, Clay started crawling the other day. It is a little slow and not perfect yet, but he is in the process! We are very excited to see another milestone met! He sure is growing up so fast!
