  1. Amazing chicken!! I usually only cook b/s chicken breasts but DH and I love chicken legs and thighs so this was a change. I made it with skin-on chicken thighs and drumsticks. These came out crispy and juicy and so good! Will make these again. Going into my best of cookbook! Made for PAC Spring 2014.
  2. A very easy recipe with tasty results. I used bone-in, skin-on thighs and adjusted the cooking time a little longer. Chicken had crispy skin and stayed juicy inside. Will be making this again. Made for Spring 2013 PAC.
  3. By far my favorite chicken leg recipe! Everyone in our family loves this, botherwise kids and adults. We make it several times a month. Thanks!


<p>I have two teenage children and am very happily married. We live in Southern, Ontario.&nbsp; <br /><br />I live to cook and just love to putter around the kitchen. I enjoy reading all kinds of cookbooks which I borrow from the library or buy second hand. I really like Taste of Home magazine, because the recipes are from ordinary people and aren't too complicated. I also like to read community or church cookbooks because you know that the recipe must be special for someone to share it. <br /><br />I discovered RecipeZaar because it was mentioned by someone in a cooking I am hooked. I think it is so helpful to read the reviews and suggestions from others who have tried recipes before me. <br /><br />I always thought of myself as a pretty good cook, but I am learning so much since I have joined RecipeZaar. I really appreciate the ideas and feed back that everyone provides.</p> 114172283"
