    This is a very nice way to roast chicken legs. The herb-butter mixture provides a wonderful method by which to keep the chicken moist while baking. I used cream cheese, plain Greek yogurt and an herb mixture of fresh lemon thyme and lavender. It was necessary to bump up the temperature to 400 degrees and roast the chicken legs for about 40 to 45 minutes. They were served with fresh green beans and Parmesan risotto for a wonderful meal.

    The combination of spices sounded good but, I didn't care for the end result.

    Very good, easy and delicious recipe. It went perfectly with roasted potatoes and steamed veggies. I used cream cheese and it was great, I will try it next time with mascarpone.

    I was afraid to try it and i am always looking for chiken leg recipes and these were great. I served with buttered noodles and southwestern creamed corn.
