Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Combine chicken legs, olive oil, thyme, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Mix chicken legs until coated and arrange on the baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until an instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone reads 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), 45 to 50 minutes.
  4. Combine honey, butter, sriracha sauce, and soy sauce in a saucepan over medium-low heat; cook and stir until butter is melted and sauce is smooth, about 5 minutes.
  5. Pour sauce into a large bowl. Transfer chicken from the baking sheet to the bowl using tongs; toss until coated with sauce.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • This isn't quite a Paleo dish because of the sriracha, and it isn't 100% low carb because of the honey, so I have labeled it primal since it's somewhere in between.

Loved this recipe. I used chicken thighs instead of legs. Also added a little more organic honey. Poured the "glaze" on and put chicken back in the oven for about 15 more minutes to let it bake ...

Made this recipe as written, with the exception of increasing the Sriracha since we love our food spicy! I just think the thyme overpowered the chicken. I'll make this again but with maybe 1/2 t...

Made as written and this turned out pretty good. I think the only change I would have liked was more Sriracha to balance out the honey. I used only the oven but next time I think I will toss the...

I made it mostly following the recipe but I used only 1 TB. of Sriracha but next time I'll definitely use two! Also I baked it for 30 minutes, then tossed it in the sauce before returning it to ...

This is sure to be a new family favorite. I made this tonight and followed the directions except that I didn't have any thyme so I used a little oregano and poultry seasoning instead. Fantastic!

My 1960 'meat and potatoes' husband said "mmnn" at least 4 times while he was eating these Korean style chicken legs ....need I say more ??. No substitutes ......delicious ! Carole VH

Nice amount of sweet and heat!

Only change is added another tablespoon of honey, soy made it a bit salty for my taste. Family loved it and suggested wings next time. Definitely a keeper.
