Super Easy Recipes Spicy Roasted Chicken Legs from It's a Keeper

With summer right around the corner, I thought I would share one of my favorite tasty chicken recipes.  These spicy roasted chicken legs are very easy to make.  They are incredible if you roast them in the oven (as directed) but would be equally as good if grilled.

I love the flavor combination in this recipe.  There’s a little tartness from the lemon, a little heat from the Sriracha butter and a little bite from the garlic.

This is a great recipe for chicken thighs, legs or even boneless, skinless breasts.  If you decide to make this using chicken breasts, though, I would cut the cooking time down to 15-20 minutes and keep an eye on the internal temperature.

This is one of those times when a good meat thermometer comes in handy.  You don’t want to over cook and dry out your chicken!

This recipe is very easily doubled if you’re expecting a crowd.  And, I can personally attest that it is just as good the next day, served cold! Like I said, it’s one of my favorite good chicken recipes.
