BEST Baked Chicken

I love a good chicken breast.  I really like the white meat and how there are so many different ways and forms to prepare it.  Usually chicken breasts are really easy to prepare and in various forms, but it is hard to get it juicy.  I have tried so many different things, but as much as they work, nothing works quite as well as a good ol’ fashioned chicken leg or wing to give you some juicy meat.

There is just something about dark meat that is juicier and more flavorful.  Although unappealing to some, I think if properly prepared, it is quite enjoyable. I have searched high and low for a wonderful baked chicken leg recipe.


You know, something that does not give you just bland chicken or something that looks visually unappealing.  I wanted something flavorful, rich and with lots of beautiful color.  Well, I found that recipe in this one and you will not believe how simple it is.

It is quite easy to get delicious flavor because meat on the bone is naturally delicious and juicy, and the caramelization ensures a pretty visual aspect as well as flavor.  So so good, flavorful and delicious!
