Butter Roasted Chicken Legs | Indianapolis Food Blogger


Greetings and Happy August!!
 

The kids are back to school and Summer is coming to a close. Where did the time go? Well, in terms of speed, I’m presenting a recipe to help make your evening meals a little easier: Butter Roasted Chicken Legs. Butter Roasted ChickenYep, really easy and fairly inexpensive. Chicken legs and thighs are running about .99 cents a pound in my area, this is usually for a family/value pack size, meaning you get a lot of cluck for your buck. I usually roast up a pack on Sunday and get at least 3 meals out of the chicken. Check out the recipe below.
