Oven Baked Chicken Leg Quarters are crispy, juicy and oh-so deliciously tender.


  • 4 chicken leg quarters
  • olive/canola oil
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1.5 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder


  1. Set chicken out about 30 minutes before cooking. (So they will be close to room temp.)
  2. Preheat oven to 425. Coat foil/pan with oil.
  3. Before starting, give the chicken quarters a sprinkle with salt and pepper on both sides.
  4. Mix the flour and all the spices in a large bowl.
  5. Brush the chicken leg quarters with olive oil, dip them in the bowl, and generously coat the chicken with the flour/spice mixture
  6. Place leg quarters, skin side down on the foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  7. Turn chicken and reduce heat to 325 degrees and bake 35-45 minutes longer or until chicken is done. (If you have a digital thermometer, go ahead and place it in the chicken at this point and bake the chicken quarters until they reach an internal temp of 165 degrees.)
