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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

I followed the recipe pretty well. I did marinate the legs is the sauce in the fridge for four hours. I didn’t check the internal temperature for 70 minutes. By that time the chicken was falling off the bone so I suggest an earlier check of the temperature. The flavor was still very good. Read More
