Directions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 450ºF. Line baking sheets with foil.

Step 2

Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the lemon juice, salt, black pepper, cayenne and garlic, and stir. Set aside.

Step 3

Rinse and pat the chicken legs dry. With metal tongs, dip them one by one into the butter mixture and place on the prepared baking sheets.

Step 4

Once all of the chicken legs are coated and on the baking sheet, take a pastry brush and give them one last coating of the butter mixture.

Step 5

Place them into the oven for 30 to 35 minutes, basting a couple of times during roasting. If they need a bit more color, turn on the broiler for a couple minutes and watch them closely.

Step 6

Remove them when they are nice and golden brown and fully cooked.
