Flavorful Skinless Chicken Legs

Chicken Legs ARE delish, but the skin just ads senseless fat. Some say that’s where there flavor is – well, then they don’t know how to add flavor.  This is my skinless chicken leg recipe that has SO much flavor, it’s almost a crime.

  • Skinless chicken legs (1-2 per person) [note: if you can’t find skinless, remove it yourself]
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup no (or low) sugar ketchup
  • 1/4 cup sriracha sauce (optional – adds heat)
  • 5 cloves minced garlic
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • Chopped chives
  • Bowl
  • Whisk
  • Metal baking sheet
  • Foil
  1. Preheat over to 350
  2. Whisk together all the ingredients (except for the chicken) in a bowl.
  3. Put foil on a baking sheet and then the chicken
  4. Pour 2/3 of the sauce over the chicken (try to cover both sides by turning the chicken)
  5. End with the meatier side of the chicken facing down
  6. Bake for 40-45 minutes
  7. Turn the chicken over and pour the rest of the sauce over it
  8. Heat the oven to 425 and bake for 10-15 minutes (keep an eye on it so it doens’t burn past the bottom bone)
  9. Take it out of the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes, then serve, top with chives

 

I paired this with baby sweet potatoes topped with fat free sour cream and chives, and a side of peas. Can I give my self a pat on the back? This was SO good and easy! I hope you enjoy it. If you make it, please drop me a line and comment on it.

Note: The honey will caramelize on the baking sheet, so get ready to soak it overnight if you don’t line the pan with foil.
