Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line baking sheets with foil.

  • Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the lemon juice, salt, black pepper, cayenne and garlic, and stir. Set aside.

  • Rinse and pat the chicken legs dry. With metal tongs, dip them one by one into the butter mixture and place on the prepared baking sheets.

  • Once all of the chicken legs are coated and on the baking sheet, take a pastry brush and give them one last coating of the butter mixture.

  • Place them into the oven for 30 to 35 minutes, basting a couple of times during roasting. If they need a bit more color, turn on the broiler for a couple minutes and watch them closely.

  • Remove them when they are nice and golden brown and fully cooked.
