Furthermore, because bird Legs s are larger than wings, I protected a generous amount of onion, garlic to atone for its size – to completely permeate the chook.  I switched out the thyme for Italian herbs or you can use another dried herbs that you have on hand.

Other than that, you have got not anything else to worry approximately ’cause making this Baked Crispy chook Legs is waaay less complicated than you suspect it is.

Baked Crispy Chicken Legs


  • 1 ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 - 3 ½ pound chicken legs
  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Italian herbs
  • 1 ½ tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 ½ tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon bouillon powder (you may replace with salt)


  1. Wash chicken legs and place them on a cookie sheet in a single layer, then let them sit in the fridge for a minimum of 3 hours or preferable overnight. Do not cover them; let the air-dry them out. You can omit this part and proceed with the spices.
  2. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 425°F.
  3. Place the chicken in a large bowl, with all the spices, and then drizzle with oil.
  4. Line a baking pan with foil; top with a wire rack. Arrange chicken legs out in a single layer. While the chicken legs are baking oil will slowly drip to the bottom of the baking pan.
  5. Bake chicken legs until cooked through and skin is crispy, about 45-50 minutes-rotate chicken legs half way through-roughly 20 minutes.
  6. Remove and serve with your favorite chicken sauce or african pepper sauce
