Easy Baked Chicken Leg Quarters


4 large chicken leg quarters, trimmed of fat
2 tbsp garlic powder
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp chili powder
Kosher salt and black pepper to taste
2 tbsp of olive oil to create a paste for the spice blend


Heat oven to 375 degrees
In a small bowl combine seasoning blend and add olive oil until a paste is formed
Pat chicken dry then apply an even amount of the paste to the chicken and massage the chicken front and back as well as under the skin
Line a baking tray with foil and assemble chicken in an even layer
Bake on the middle rack of the oven for one hour, you know the chicken has cooked long enough when the meat begins pulling away from the bone on the drumstick
For the last 10 minutes of cooking increase the heat on the oven to a low broil or 450 degrees and cook until the skin is crisp and a nice golden brown color is achieved
Remove chicken from oven and serve
You can use the drippings from the chicken to make a gravy if desired
