Mexican Chicken Legs

READY IN: 2hrs 5mins
Recipe by Boomette

It can be any pieces of chicken. I tried it with boneless chicken breasts. You may adapt the cooking time. To make it low-sodium you may omit the salt and celery salt. Maybe celery seeds would be great.

Great chicken! Used bone-in chicken drumsticks and also skipped some of the ingredients for the sauce that I didn't have -- wonderful and top it off uses mostly pantry ingredients that are on hand, so no long grocery list! Thanks for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put chicken legs in a baking dish.
  2. Mix all remaining ingredients. Pour the sauce over chicken legs.
  3. Bake, uncovered, in a preheated oven of 325 F for about 2 hours. If you use boneless chicken breasts, it may be less than 2 hours. I don't remember. Baste a few times with the sauce.
