hello everybody here at Mylot. i have a family package of chicken legs thawing out for dinner tonight. there are so many possibilities that i could go with for dinner with the chicken legs. i could bbq them, fry them, bake them, broil the chicken legs and make some kind of a casserole with them, throw them in the crock pot this afternoon on high and hope for the best? lol so right now i am undecided how that i am going to prepare my chicken legs for dinner tonight. so tell me, how do you like your chicken legs cooked? thanks for sharing and have a beautiful day today!

Oh copycat! I had them for lunch today. I thought it was best to have a simple lunch today and I boiled them and did fennel and boiled potatoes in a salad to have with them. The salad was garnished with chives. Very simple, very plain but that's what I felt I needed today as too much spicy stuff is not good for the system and as Sunday is a day of rest, it was for my digestive system too

we had chicken for dinner, too. my son cooked some chicken adobo for us. it is very easy to do. the chicken plus some onion rings, minced garlic, two tablespoons of vinegar, two tablespoons of soy sauce, a dash of sugar, a little powdered black pepper, some laurel leaves and salt to taste is all it takes. all of the above ingredients plus some cooking oil all mixed in a frying pan will be ready to go to the stove for cooking. once the whole thing smells good, it is cooked and ready for eating. yes, this is spicy food which is adviseable to be taken on few occasions only in a month's time. but, it tastes really good.

hello chicken leg cook! I am having chicken tonight also, I love cooking it like this: 1 onion granulated garlic or mashed whole garlic 3 grated carrots 2 chicken stock olive oil first put all the leg on the baking tray and add olive oil and some salt(not too much, just a pinch on each leg) put the tray on the hob until the chicken starts sizzling, add the sliced onion, garlic and carrots. Disolve the chicken stock in hot water and add to the chicken, leave on the hob for a bit more watching that the chicken doesnt go dry. Now if you see the onions getting brown put the chicken in the oven gas mark 6 for 10 minutes, it will roast the skin of the chicken and it will get all the flavours, you can also make a fried rice usind the carrots and sliced onions and some green peas and sweetcorn. by the time your rice is done your chicken will be juicy and delicious. yum yum I hope i made you all very hungry, chiken legs are so easy to play with in the kitchen. enjoy!!!

I think I would just throw them in the crock pot with some carrots, celery and onions. Pour a little bit of chicken broth in and salt n pepper to taste. Walk away for a few hours and dinners done!

this could be the perfect time to make sure the grill is working properly after a cold winter

If you want something simple and tasty: Roll the chicken legs in beaten egg and plain flour then shallow fry (I use an electric frying pan). They come out with a nice crispy coating that is healthier than most and tasty too! :-)

Fast, Easy, Delicious, CHEAP!: get the shake and bake stuff and throw them in the oven. Make a box of garlic mashed potatoes from the box for about 88 cents at cheapmart. heat up a can of green beans or corn with a little seasoning of your choice. put it all together and it's soooo good!!!

so what did u end up preparing? I would just ask the people at home what they'd rather eat. I personally like fried chicken. It's so yummy on it's own. So rich and so fattening too! Anyway, I like chicken myself. As you said, it's so easy to prepare. And almost everyone eats chicken, right?!

I am not big on chicken legs. I normally go for boneless skinless bre@sts. The only time I really eat chicken legs is fried. Not good for you, but very tasty. You posted this 9 hours ago, so I am guessing you made them by now. What did you end up doing with them?

Hello Tn Woman! I do love me some chicken legs! I find they are very useful to have in the freezer to pull out and thaw for a quick fix dinner. They are also quite ecomomical! I got a laugh out of your crockpot comment, because I use mine SOOO often. It is just too easy to throw something in around 1 in the afternoon, and Voila! Dinner is ready around 6! I was acctually going to suggest just tossing some lovely veggies like carrots, potatoes, celery and onions in the bottom, dusting the legs with salt and pepper and pouring on a few cans of cream of celery or mushroom soup over the lot of it for the day! Good luck and enjoy your dinner! Let us know how it came out...

I dont like chicken legs at all. I prefer the white meat. But once in awhile I buy chicken legs for a change (esp when my husband gets bored in eating all the white chicken fillets,lol). I usually make BBQ out of them and at other times I make Tinola, Sinampalukan and Adobo (all of which are Filipino classics) and it goes real good with steaming bowl of rice, yum!

Since you already have them in the crock pot, throw in some potatoes, carrots, peas or green beans. Let it all cook, take out the legs, and strip the meat of the bones, throw it back in. Then add 2 cans of cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup or one can of each. Cook up some egg noodles and add them as well. Mix good. Take a box of stove top stuffing and make it per box instructions and spread over the top of the chicken mixture. You have everything in one meal. You can also make home made chicken soup out of the legs. Just add water to the legs, salt and pepper, onion, celery and carrots, cook until everything is done. Strip the meat off the bones, salt and pepper soup, add cooked egg noodles, and meat, and cook for another hour. You will have delicious home made chicken noodles soup.

I like equal parts soy sauce ketchup and honey. You just marinate until ready to bake. Bake skin side down for about 45 minutes, then turn over for the last 15 minutes or so to brown the top. I guarantee you will get rave reviews with that simple recipe. People think it's some really hard thing to do. Little do they know it's one of the easiest ways of making chicken. This is the recipe my mom makes for company because it's always good and the company actually thinks it's something extra special.

All of the above sounds good. My friend has a rotesserie, she put some legs and thighs in it and let it cook, it was scrumptious. I want to get me a roteserrie cooker, it makes the food so good. I just took some polluck fish out of the freezer to thaw, thats what I am going to have for dinner. I am having my bowl of ice cream snack right now, did you ever give in and have your ice cream last night.
