  1. If your meat is frozen, defrost it. You may get rid of the skin if you like. Wash it, using warm water and dry in the strainer or using paper towels.
  2. Peel garlic and wash it as well. Use big knife to mash or chop it. Mix it with paprika, mayonnaise, black pepper and salt in the bowl. Use this mass to rub chicken legs. Leave them to marinate for half an hour.
  3. Preheat the oven to 356 degrees. Meanwhile you need to cover the tray with the tinfoil. Put marinated chicken on it and cover with the rest of marinade.
  4. Cover chicken legs with the tinfoil and bake for 30 minutes. Then you need to open the tinfoil and bake poultry for 15-20 minutes again until there is a crunchy crust.

Bon Appetite! Recommendations: 1. Chicken is one of the most popular and available types of meat. You may use simple and available ingredients for garnish as well. The best choice is to cook it with potato. 2. For the poultry to be juicy and tender, use fresh meat. Frozen meat will be dry and tough after baking. 3.

Cooking chicken in the tinfoil, don’t forget to open it before the end of the process of baking. Otherwise, there will be no crust. 5. You may add spices or some other ingredients into the bowl with marinade. Anyway, it should be liquid and a bit sweet. You may cook marinade, using fruit or vegetable juices, yoghurt, sour cream, honey or vegetable oil. Use your fantasy and create unusual marinade for cooking delicious chicken legs. 6. You may bake this poultry with vegetables or even fruits. You may add mushrooms, carrot, tomatoes, zucchini, bell peppers, onion, cauliflower or even sliced apples. Apple will make meat juicy and sweet. Cook chicken legs, following this instruction, and you`ll be completely satisfied with the results!
