So, how much time does it take to bake chicken legs properly? This will depend on a few factors. First, whether you’re baking only legs or chicken leg quarters, that is, leg and thigh together.
If you’re only baking the legs, it will take about 30 minutes at the temperature of 380F for them to cook completely. The exact timing might depend on how many legs you bake and on their size. Free range chicken legs are usually leaner and smaller than broiler chicken legs.
If you’re baking chicken leg quarters, this may take up to an hour. It’s also recommended that you increase the temperature to 425F for about 5-7 minutes before serving. This way you will have delicious golden crispy crust on your chicken legs.
Here’s another tip for you to cook your chicken legs with a golden crust - mix a couple of tablespoons of olive oil with salt and pepper in a cup and rub the mixture into the chicken leg skin. Leave for 5-7 minutes before you start cooking. Other than that, just follow the instruction in your recipe of choice.
