  • Divide the remaining mixture into 4 portions and stuff the pockets of each chicken leg quarters. Gently pull the skin over to cover the mixture.
  • Place chicken on baking pan. Top each chicken leg quarters with the reserved potato mixture. Sprinkle the prepared chicken with remaining 1 tsp Creole seasoning.
