  • 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

I left out the meat tenderizer. I don't really even know what that stuff is or what it does. Made my own adobo. No added salt and the recipe is dairy free! This turned out really good! Read More
