DH and I love chicken legs better than the other sections of the chicken. I just add my special touch of seasonings to the basic flour mixture. Everyone loves them legs!!

I am only rating the cooking method/times because I used a different recipe for the breading. I will say the cooking method was AWESOME and it cooked the chicken legs perfectly! They were juicy but well-cooked and was exactly what I needed. I'm keeping this as my method for always cooking chicken legs! I will warn you: there were some major splatters going on at my house to where I had to clean my floor twice. But that's just the way it goes - so I'm getting a splatter screen before I make these again!

This recipe was very successful. The chicken turned out golden brown and juicy. I have been frying chicken for almost all my life and this was a delicious recipe. I will be using this again.

Wow! Crispy, brown, moist, flavorful! They look picture perfect on a platter too. These were wonderful. I didn't have beau monde seasoning, so I left that out. I put in cayenne pepper to suit my husband's taste. Great recipe. Will make again.
