Chicken Leg Quarters

Recommended Posts

Oven Barbecued Chicken

( Total baking time for BBQ Chicken: 1 hour )


Use broiler-fryer chicken pieces for this recipe.

( drumsticks & hindleg quarters, split )

First - remove skin from the chicken.

Season with salt & pepper.

In one 13x9-inch baking pan; add 2 to 4 tablespoons

of shortening, and 2 to 4 tablespoons butter,

( or 4 to 8 Tbsp. of Buttered Flavored Crisco )

just enough to coat the bottom of the pan.


In a 375 to 400 degree oven,

( depending how "hot" your oven gets )

melt shortening and butter in baking pan.

Add skinless, chicken pieces ( meaty side down )

and bake for 15 minutes.

Turn chicken over, and bake 15 minutes more.


Remove pan from oven, turn chicken over;

coat each piece with barbecue sauce

( choice of barbecue sauce your preference ).

Return to oven, bake 15 minutes.

Once again remove pan from oven,

turn chicken to coat other side with the barbecue sauce.

Return to oven, and bake 15 minutes more.

This is really good barbecue chicken, with out the skin.


*Note: For this recipe, use as many pieces of chicken

as you'd like, and the desired amount of barbecue sauce

as well.


Also, when preparing Oven Barbecued Chicken,

add some diced canned jalapeno peppers to the bbq sauce,

( either the day before baking the chicken )

or 30 minutes to 1 hour before basting the chicken. "YUM"!!

Thank you DomesticGoddess! I look forward to your other recipes as well.


MommyHomeSchools4 - If I can this, do I make a broth with them and remove the bone? The only chicken stuff I've canned before is chicken broth/soup.

I would probably boil them then first. Then after cooling and skimming off the fat, I would pick the meat and can the meat in broth. I like to leave out spices so I can use it for anything. One of our stores has them for $.29/lb this week so I'll be doing it this week too. Also hamburger is 1.38 so I'll be drying more of that too.

Crispy Herb Chicken


1 1/4 cups crushed, crispy rice cereal

1 (.06 oz.) packet Good Seasons Italian Salad Dressing & Recipe Mix

1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes

3 lbs. chicken ( chicken legs and thighs ) 9 pcs. equals 3 lbs.

6 tablespoons butter, melted

(I melted the butter in an 8x8-in. pan in oven)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Combine crushed cereal, salad dressing and parsley.

Quickly dip chicken pieces in melted butter;

then roll in cereal mixture.

Place chicken (skin-side-up) on a rack in an

ungreased 13x9-in. baking pan.

Sprinkle with any remaining cereal-crumb mixture.

"DO NOT" turn chicken at anytime, while baking in oven.

Bake 50 - 60 minutes.


*Note: You will need one of those 13x9-inch baking pans,

that come with one of those baking racks to place inside pan.

I did not have one of those special pans,

so I sprayed my pan with Pam.

I think the next time I make this chicken,

I will purchase one of those baking pans,

that comes with the rack.

which tastes just like the Heinz 57 Steak Sauce, and it's alot cheaper.
