Cooking Tips

To ensure that your chicken is cooked through and juicy, use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. The chicken should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165°F/75°C for food safety.


The best way to get the skin crispy on chicken legs is to thoroughly pat them dry with paper towels. This will help to remove any excess moisture from the chicken, which will make it crispier when baked.


The marinade for this recipe adds wonderful flavor to the chicken, so it’s worth taking the extra step of marinating them for 2 hours or overnight for the best results. Not only does this add flavor, but it also helps to tenderize the chicken for a juicier result.
