    So awesome and easy! I followed recipe to a t which I don’t normally do. I found 4 lbs of chicken legs on sale yesterday and then found this well rated recipe today. I agree that this will be a long time fave in my family. My picky 7 year old said he liked it too! Next time I will add more Siracusa though because we like more heat. Thank you so much for sharing!!  -  25 Feb 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Left skin on and doubled the seasoning mixture to coat the chicken. Sauce proportions were right on.  -  12 Feb 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
