Roasted Chicken Legs

My family is crazy about this chicken! It takes an hour to cook, but it only takes about 10 minutes to get it in the oven. Use as many chicken legs as you want. I usually make as many as I can fit on my baking pan, because the kids love taking the leftovers for lunch the next day! You might be tempted to skip the cinnamon, but you’re just going to have to trust me on this one- the flavor is amazing!

Ingredients:

  • Chicken Legs
  • Olive Oil or Avocado Oil
  • Kosher Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Onion Powder
  • Paprika (smoked or regular)
  • Cinnamon

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400.

Lay the chicken legs on a baking sheet lined with foil, and pat the chicken dry with a paper towel.

Drizzle the chicken with oil and rub it on both sides. Sprinkle each leg with salt, pepper, onion powder, paprika, and a tiny bit of cinnamon.

Bake for 30 minutes. Flip the chicken, and cook another 30 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches at least 165 degrees.
