  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Whisk honey, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, balsamic vinegar, water, olive oil, and garlic together in a large bowl. Add chicken legs and toss to coat. Place chicken legs on the prepared baking sheet; season with salt and pepper.
