Recipe Tips and Tricks

  • Pat the chicken legs dry with paper towels to remove any excess moisture on the surface of the skin. This helps guarantee even crispier chicken skin.
  • You only need a little bit of oil. Too much oil and the skin will be soggy.
  • You may also season your chicken legs with your favorite marinade or store-bought dry rub. If you’re hoping to have crispy skin, however, steer clear of marinades as they add too much moisture making it difficult for the skin to get crispy.
