Honey-Mustard Baked Chicken Legs

Updated: Feb 15, 2020

  • 3 tablespoons canola oil

  • 3 tablespoons honey mustard

  • 4 teaspoons honey

  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon paprika

  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives

  • 1 ½ teaspoons dried basil

  • 2 teaspoons adobo seasoning

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • ½ teaspoon meat tenderizer

  • 2 chicken leg quarters with skin


Directions/Instructions Checklist

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).


Step 2

Combine oil, honey mustard, and honey in a bowl until well combined. Stir in garlic, paprika, chives, basil, adobo seasoning, onion powder, and meat tenderizer. Stir until fully blended.


Step 3

Coat the bottom of a glass baking dish with 2 to 3 tablespoons of mustard sauce mixture. Place chicken legs on top and cover with the rest of the sauce mixture. Cover dish with aluminum foil.


Step 4

Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, 60 to 75 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).


Cook's Notes:

You can use a mixture of 2 tablespoons olive oil and 2 tablespoons canola oil instead of all canola oil. I prefer to use the green labeled adobo all-purpose seasoning containing cumin.


If you like, you can uncover the chicken towards the end and move it under the broiler to crisp for 10 to 15 minutes.
