    PSU Lioness's Note:

    This is one that I adapted from Baked Chicken Thighs/Leg Quarters after I scored 4 huge chicken leg quarters on sale. ($0.39 a pound!). I added a few things and adjusted the cooking time and temp to to what worked for me. The skin got SO crispy and the chicken was moist and retained the flavors. It also fell off the bone. I hope you enjoy!

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375.
    2. 2
      Line a large glass baking dish with foil.
    3. 3
      Remove excess fat from chicken quarters.
    4. 4
      Separate the skin from the chicken, taking care that the skin stays attached at most points on the chicken. (You just want a flap. Do not remove the skin).
    5. 5
      Brush the chicken (under the skin) with soy sauce.
    6. 6
      Sprinkle some garlic powder, seasoned salt and dill weed on the chicken under the skin (I estimated the 1 tsp measures. Use as much or as little as you're comfortable with) and rub inches.
    7. 7
      Arrange the leg quarters in the pan, skin side up, taking care not to crowd. They need space to cook properly.
    8. 8
      Brush both sides of the leg quarters with soy sauce.
    9. 9
      Sprinkle the skin with garlic powder, seasoned salt and dill weed (to taste).
    10. 10
      Place on middle rack in over and bake uncovered for an hour.
    11. 11
      After an hour, increase oven temp to 400 and bake 15 minutes.
    12. 12
      Chicken is done when internal temp reaches 165 (insert meat thermometer at thickest part of breast, taking care not to touch the bone).
    13. 13
      Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

      This really is an easy and flavorful chicken recipe. I used 4 big thighs and seasoned them on a dinner plate, using all of your suggested spices and low sodium soy sauce. Just as I was about to put them in the oven, we were invited out to I covered them with plastic wrap and stuck them in the fridge. They marinaded all night and we had them for lunch today. OMG they were fabulous! I baked them on a rack on a foil lined cookie sheet at 375 for one hour. They came out so crispy, juicy and tender. This one goes into my regular rotation for sure. Thank you for posting PSU Lioness.

      Here's why I think this recipe is fantastic & worthy of 5 stars: the crispy skin! I have been learning a new dish almost everyday, & have tried a lot of chicken dishes. I have also tried the original recipe this was modified from, & thought that was tasty as well, but this dish blows that dish away, if I may be so bold. It smells delicious even before you put the dish in the oven, and the skin wasn't burnt, but crisped to perfection (some people, like my husband, get grossed out by the skin, but if you're with me you'll understand!). The meat was also falling off the bone & moist. My husband loved this recipe and gave an eager thumbs up when I asked if I should keep this recipe in our menu. Thank you PSU Lioness!

      Excellent and simple!
      I'll skip the dill next time I think, but we're just not a big an of it, so if you like Dill, don't change a thing!
