Baked Chicken Leg Quarters

Easy baked chicken leg quarters

I put oven on 425° because I want mine more browned than what I’d get with lower temperatures. First I let them sit out about 30 minutes to get to room temperature; to cook more evenly. Then I seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic powder & smoked paprika on all sides. Place them skin side down on nonstick foil lined baking sheet. After 20 minutes flip chicken pieces over and bake additional 20 to 30 minutes, depending on size of chicken. Or when internal temperature reaches 170° … give or take; dark meat chicken is very forgiving. Chicken is safe at 165°. 😋 On this occasion I served with buttered pasta…with a little Hawaiian Red Sea Salt 😉
