1/2 Photos of Roasted Chicken Legs With Plum Chili Salsa
Mrs Goodall's Note:
When we moved into our first house a few years ago, we were lucky enough to have the most fabulous italian plum trees. This was the first recipe I made that first summer with my plums. It is soooo good. I like dark meat chicken with the skin on (I am not ashamed!!!). But I'm sure you can make with white meat and save a few calories. It is easy and pretty quick, I hope you'll enjoy it!!
