Baked Chicken Legs with Garlic and Dijon

Ingredients for Baked Chicken Legs:

  • Chicken Legs or drumsticks

  • Lemon juice from 1 large lemon
  • Dijon mustard
  • Salt and black pepper

How to Make Baked Chicken Legs:

Chicken legs are our favorite because they are dark meat so they naturally have great flavor. Coat them in this amazing marinade and these may just be the tastiest chicken drumsticks you’ve had.
1. Make Chicken Marinade: Stir together the chicken marinade ingredients.
2. Marinate the Chicken: Transfer chicken legs to a large mixing bowl or a large Ziploc bag. Pour the marinade over the chicken and toss by hand to evenly coat chicken. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate, stirring once while marinating.
3. Bake Chicken Legs: Preheat oven and line a rimmed baking sheet with foil or silpat liner. Arrange chicken skin-side-down. Brush chicken legs with any extra marinade left in the mixing bowl. Bake at 400˚F skin side down, then turn the chicken legs over and bake additional time skin-side-up.
