EASY Chicken Legs!

Bless you for stopping by. Would you please share this post using the buttons above? Please note: this post may contain affiliate links.

I grew up in a southern home with FRIED CHICKEN!  OH, it was YUMMY!  However, I never mastered the skill, myself.  It never tasted as good as Mom’s and I did not enjoy standing over the stove cooking it.

So, I decided to make a very simple version of Chicken Legs that my family LOVES.  And my friends, once they try my chicken, they love it as well.  It is yummy, good for you, and did I mention:  EASY!?

Easy Chicken Legs


  • Chicken Legs
  • Butter (I like using cultured butter)
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  • Preheat Oven to 350
  • Place chicken in 9*13 Glass Baking Dish
  • Put a little dab of butter on each leg
  • Salt/Pepper to taste.
  • Bake for 1 hr 30 minutes.
  • Turn every half hour…salt/pepper as necessary (not a lot….just to give it a little more flavor).
There you have it: the yummiest, easiest chicken your family will absolutely BEG for!
If you like chicken, I know you will love my Chicken Noodle Soup. It’s another easy, inexpensive and very yummy dish your family will love!

  1. My kids love chicken legs. I'll have to try this. Easy is always good.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. The prep work for FIAR really depends on you. You can definitely use the ideas in the book as is and not spend a lot of time. I always feel the need to add more though, especially now that my kids are older, but I have problems leaving anything alone. If you just want to try it out, you should look at http://www.homeschoolshare.com. The units there are very similar and free.

  2. Mmm I'm going to have to try this. I grew up in the south too and have never made fried chicken. My hubby is still amazed by that. ha!

  3. Rebecca, do you cover the dish with foil? Or leave uncovered?

    I’m a Southern girl too and have NEVER made fried chicken! I make some mean sweet tea, but I’ve never attempted fried chicken! I can’t wait to try this!!

    • Lauren, I do not cover the dish with anything… helps the chicken become golden brown with a little crispy crunch. You could roll them in flour – seasoned a little too…that really gives it a crispy coating.

  4. Going to make this tonight :)
