Maple Mustard Chicken LegsPosted by in Food
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!
- 12 chicken legs
- ¼ maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- Season the chicken legs with salt and pepper and bake at 400 for about an hour and 15 minutes, until they are brown and crunchy.
- Spread the glaze on the legs and bake another 5 minutes.
