Easy Bisquick Chicken Legs

This was adapted from a recipe on the back of the box. This is great cold and also good for potlucks. You could keep the chicken legs warm in a crock-pot, set on low.

I made this on 12/29/11 for the " Bargain Basement " Event, and most importantly mine and my SO's dinner :). I did something to this recipe that I hardly do, the recipe was prepped exactly as it was written. But there was a problem in Step 3, it reads" Dip half the chicken strips into egg " but in the title and list of ingredients it mentions legs. With a novice Chef it might be a bit confusing.After baking the chicken for 15 minutes, it was still raw.After turning I added 15 more minutes.The extra 15 minutes seemed to get it done,but it wasn't crispy. So, the chicken was popped under the broiler to get the desired crispness. We both enjoyed the seasonings.Since my SO enjoys dark meat better than I do, he enjoyed it more.I bet this recipe would be really good using bone in chicken breasts.Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "

We loved this chicken, it had great flavor and was super moist. I added more pepper than it called for but we love pepper. Wonderful recipe, I'm just sorry for the circumstances that I decided to make it.

I was disappointed in this recipe. I cooked the chicken for over 20 minutes and it was still red and raw inside, and the coating never browned or got crispy. I was cooking "tenders" along with the legs, and those turned out in around 10 minutes, although we had to broil them for a minute to brown them up.
