Seasoned Baked Chicken Legs

This is such a flavorful way to make chicken or any type of meat! I use these chicken legs on top of rice. Although it has unique spices on it, it is very simple to make. The seasoning does not have to be exact so it is easy to modify the recipe for more or less chicken. Also, the seasonings are salty so there is no need to add salt to the meat.

Most of the seasonings can be found at the Hala shops, but the Sazon can be found in most local grocery stores. It is usually located in the Hispanic Food section. Also, if you can not find the Goya brand, there is a Knott brand that is powder. I recommend using about 1 tablespoon of the knott powder brand, although it will not make the chicken as yellowish-orange it will taste the same.

Cook time about 1 hour 45 minutes
Makes 6 Chicken Legs

6 Chicken legs (skin or skinless)
1 Tablespoon of Garam Marsala
1 Tablespoon of Vegeta Seasoning
2 Tablespoons of Lemon Pepper Seasoning
2 Packages of Sazon Goya
2 Tablespoons of Oil

Add all the seasonings to the chicken with the Sazon the last season being added and coat well until all the seasoning is on the chicken.

Cover and let sit for 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and add chicken to an oven safe pan.

Drizzle the chicken with the oil and put it on the 2nd lowest rack in the oven for 35-40 minutes.

Flip the chicken after 35-40 minutes.

Cook for another 40 minutes.

Once most of the juice is gone chicken is done.
