Maple Mustard Chicken Legs

Posted by Brette in Food

ChickenLegs (2)Chicken legs are one of my weeknight panic dishes. On the nights when I can’t think of a single thing to make or don’t have time to stand in front of the stove, I pull a package out of the freezer, dump them on a baking sheet and bake them while I am doing something else. If they’re thawed, they bake in a little over an hour. If they are frozen, it takes about an hour and 45 minutes to two hours. Usually I make a quick barbecue sauce. Every single person in my household eats theses, so it is always a winner.

One night last week when I was dealing with a deadline, had a kid to drive to his volunteer job, and had no time to think about dinner, I pulled my trusty chicken legs out of the freezer again. Only this time, I decided to change up the sauce and made this 3 ingredient maple mustard glaze that was fabulous!
