Salt & Pepper Oven Baked Chicken Legs


  • 8 chicken legs
  • 3 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons crushed black pepper
  • 4 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 5 cloves garlic chopped
  • 4 green onions diced
  • chili pepper flakes optional but the heat is nice!


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Combine the salt and pepper together in a bowl. Place the chicken legs on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Sprinkle the chicken legs with the salt and pepper, then shake on the baking tray to cover completely.
  • Bake for 15 minutes then turn and bake for another 15-20 minutes until crispy and cooked to 185 °F at least. You can cook them a bit further to your liking if you desire.
  • As soon as the legs are close to being done, heat the sesame oil in a skillet over medium heat then add the garlic and onions. 
  • Cook until the garlic has browned slightly.
  • Remove the chicken legs from oven and place in a large bowl.
  • Toss the chicken legs with the garlic oil until completely coated.
  • Place the now crispy, oven baked chicken legs on a serving platter, spooning any leftover garlic oil over the top.
  • Serve and enjoy!
