If you love easy, sticky, flavorful Asian seasonings, this gluten free chicken legs recipe is a dish you will love. This dinner is quick and easy, perfect for those busy weeknights.
My kids are all about protein right now as they have been going through several rapid growth spurts.
Buying a lot of meat can add up cost-wise quickly, so to save a little money on groceries, I like to buy a couple of packages of chicken legs. They absorb marinades nicely…and this way my kids don’t have to fight over the legs on a chicken :-). Grill them or bake them. You know they are ready when their internal temperature is 165 degrees.
This easy Asian marinated chicken leg recipe is a kid-favorite in our house.
You have to love this chicken recipe for a lot of reasons, but the fact that kids can eat these with their hands is the best. Messy dinners always taste better!! And even better? This recipe is also a huge time saver because they are ready in just 30 minutes.
When you are shopping, make sure your hoisin is gluten free. If you can’t find one, this recipe I found will help you make your own.
