Lea's Baked Chicken

Recipe by RazorbackFan

I'm always trying to find ways to cook those cheap chicken leg quarters. I came up with this trying to find a good way to bake them whole and not cut up. My family loves them and I figure you can use any good seasoning mix to use in this method. Cavender's just happens to be one of my favorite blends. It's kinda of a greek pepper taste. It's made in Harrison, AR. It's also salt free!

After a long day out of town, all I wanting to do is come home and rest, but I needed to feed the family. So this recipe was perfect, it took me less then five mins to prepare. The chicken was tender, we served it with mash potatoes and steamed broccoli. I did however need to make a change, I didn't have Cavender's Seasoning in my region so I used Masterfoods Greek Seasoning. Thank you RazorbackFan
