  • 2 ½ pounds chicken legs
  • salt to taste
  • 2 ½ teaspoons Creole seasoning
  • 1 cup barbeque sauce

  • Preheat oven at 400F, prepare baking sheet by lining with foil and top with a wire rack.

  • Place the chicken in a large bowl, and season with salt and Creole seasoning, toss properly to make sure it is well-seasoned.
  • Arrange chicken legs out in a single layer on the wire rack. While the chicken legs are baking oil will slowly drip to the bottom of the baking sheet.
  • Bake chicken legs for 20 minutes before adding the barbecue sauce (until skin starts to crisp and fat render).
  • Using a silicon brush, generously brush chicken with barbecue sauce on both sides. Continue baking chicken until crisps evenly on all side and lightly charred, for 20 minutes.
  • Garnish chicken with parsley and serve immediately.
