Dinner, Recipes

None of my chickens were hurt in the making of this recipe.. :) Baked Chicken Legs

My chickens are only used for eggs, but for the past month they haven’t given me any. So if they don’t start paying their rent they may just end up being fried or baked in the oven. πŸ™‚

For the recipe tho, I didn’t use any of them, so they are safe for now. Lol

Baked Chicken Legs


  • Package of chicken legs (6-8 legs)
  • Paprika
  • Garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp corn starch
  • 2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 tbsp melted butter


  • Preheat oven to 375Β°
  • Mix flour, paprika, garlic powder, cornstarch, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper together. 
  • In a 9×13 baking dish, melt butter.
  • Coat chicken legs in flour mixture and add to pan with melted butter.
  • Cook for 25 minutes
  • Flip and cook an additional 25 minutes. 

I never measure anything, just eye ball everything. A dash of this and a dash of that, that’s just how I roll. Lol!

I then decided to make Broccoli Cheese Rice Casserole, it’s been so long since I had made one, probably because I’m the only one in my family that will eat it. Oh well, more for me. 

Broccoli Cheese Rice Casserole

1 cup dry rice cooked
2 frozen packages of broccoli florets cooked or 1 large fresh head
2 celery ribs chopped and cooked
1 small onion chopped and cooked
1 large bottle of Cheese Whiz
1 can of cream of mushroom soup undiluted


  • Cook rice according to package directions.
  • Cook the broccoli according to package directions but a minute or two less since you will be baking this rice dish. If you using fresh broccoli I usually steam it a bit crisp, but it all depends on how firm you like your broccoli.
  • Saute onion and celery together on medium heat in a little oil or butter until soft. If you don’t want to dirty another pan just throw the celery and onions in with the broccoli.
  • In a medium size mixing bowl heat the cheese and the soup together until warm and mixed well.
  • In a large casserole dish 9X13 put the rice and vegetables in and stir. Add cheese mixture and stir until well combined.
  • Bake uncovered for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

Saturday turned out to be a good one, Mountaineers won and good food was made. Now onto Sunday, let’s see what I can whip up today. 

Hope everyone has a good one,

Til next time,
