Instructions
  1. Wash chicken legs and place them on a cookie sheet in a single layer, then let them sit in the fridge for a minimum of 3 hours or preferable overnight. Do not cover them; let the air-dry them out. You can omit this part and proceed with the spices.
  2. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 425°F.
  3. Place the chicken in a large bowl, with all the spices, and then drizzle with oil.
  4. Line a baking pan with foil; top with a wire rack. Arrange chicken legs out in a single layer. While the chicken legs are baking oil will slowly drip to the bottom of the baking pan.
  5. Bake chicken legs until cooked through and skin is crispy, about 45-50 minutes-rotate chicken legs half way through-roughly 20 minutes.
  6. Remove and serve with your favorite chicken sauce or african pepper sauce
