Oven baked chicken legs keep well (refrigerated) and are great cold. They are terrific for healthy packed lunches and picnics.
When I was growing up, these chicken drumsticks were a staple of meals, leftovers, and packed lunches. We called this baked chicken "oven fried chicken."
All you need:
I no longer recommend using new glass baking pans due to reports of newer pans shattering.
Chicken is cooked (done) when juices run clear, rather than bloody, when it is pierced with a fork.
You can bake to your desired level of crispiness.
Thighs: Bake about an hour at 350 degrees.
Whole Leg (a leg and a thigh): Bake a little more than an hour at 350 degrees.
Chicken breast with bone: Bake about an hour at 350 degrees.
