  • 4 pounds chicken legs

  • 2 tablespoons chili powder

  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt

  • 2 tablespoons tamari


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Place chicken legs in a large bowl. Spread chili powder, garlic powder, cayenne, and salt onto the chicken; pour sauce over top. Mix thoroughly and transfer to a baking sheet.

  3. Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, 45 to 50 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

You can use soy sauce for tamari if desired.
