Cooking chicken legs baked in the oven with potatoes:

Step 1: Prepare the chicken legs.

Defrost chicken drumsticks, rinse under cold boiled water and remove feathers if necessary. Dry with a paper towel and carefully rub them with salt, pepper and seasonings. Seasonings and spices can be chosen to your taste or use a special mixture for chicken. Now the chicken legs must be fried so that the crust retains the liquid in the meat during baking and the legs are juicy and tender. Grease a frying pan with vegetable oil, heat and spread chicken drumsticks. Fry them over high heat until golden brown, about 5-7 minutes. Do not forget to turn the legs so that they are fried evenly.

Step 2: Prepare the potatoes.

Peel the potatoes and rinse thoroughly under cold running water. Then cut the potatoes in any way (quarters, halves, whetstones, etc.). Lubricate the pan with vegetable oil, heat it and put potatoes on it. Sprinkle potatoes with salt and pepper, mix and fry it over high heat until golden brown. It is advisable to stir the potatoes constantly.

Step 3: Bake chicken legs with potatoes.

The form (you can take a deep pan) is greased with vegetable oil and spread the fried drumsticks. We spread the fried potatoes to them. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees, put the form there and bake chicken legs with potatoes for 25-35 minutes. We check the readiness of the legs by piercing one of them with a knife - if the meat is pierced easily and a clear liquid is released without blood impurity, the chicken is ready.

Step 4: Serve the chicken legs baked in the oven with potatoes.

We take the finished dish out of the oven, serve on plates, sprinkle with chopped herbs and serve. Enjoy your meal!
