There are different kinds of ovens on the market but which is the best oven to buy? A single stove or range with a cooking top on top and an oven underneath is space conserving and affordable and found in most houses.

If you have some chicken legs, or chicken leg quarters, in other words the thigh and drumstick attached, then you might be wondering how to cook them. I love to make easy baked chicken legs regularly.
The good news is this cut of chicken is not only economical but filling, tasty (because it is higher in fat than the chicken breast) and easy to cook. Although you can slow cook chicken legs, I nearly always bake them in the oven because this gets the skin really crisp, and that’s the best bit!
How to Get Chicken Skin Crispy on Easy Baked Chicken Legs
You will need to add salt plus some kind of fat to get the skin to crisp up. This doesn’t need to be butter or oil. If you want something lower in fat, consider spray oil. You only need a quick spritz of it. Choose chicken legs the same size, or close enough, so they cook evenly and have the same cooking time.
It’s up to you what else you add to this easy baked chicken legs recipe. You might wish to marinate the chicken legs first or add other herbs or spices, but they’re just as nice cooked plain, with simply salt and fat on the skin, because they have a lovely natural flavor, and you can serve them with any kind of side dish.
