2 bone-in skin-on chicken legs

1 Tbsp butter

1/2 Tbsp lemon pepper seasoning*


Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Lightly coat the inside of a casserole dish with non-stick spray. Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel, then smear butter over the surface of the skin. Sprinkle the lemon pepper seasoning liberally over both sides of the chicken pieces. Place the seasoned chicken in the casserole dish. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for one hour at 300 degrees. Baste the chicken once half way through. After one hour, remove the foil, baste again, and turn the heat up to 425 degrees. Continue to bake the chicken at the higher temperature for 20-30 minutes, or until the skin has achieved the desired level of brownness. Serve with the juices spooned over top or with bread for dipping.
