Slow Roasted Chicken Legs

Dana has been wanting to make some of her childhood recipes, so I told her to go for it.  So here is Dana with another great recipe.

The other day I was wracking my brain over what to cook for dinner that would please our almost two year old.  I started to think back on some of the dishes my mom used to cook for us and recalled one of my favorites!  This is very easy to prepare (takes about 15mins max) and tastes delicious!  Our son loved the meal and that’s how you know it’s a winner!

I used a roaster pan to cook this dish.  Coat the bottom of the pan with margarine.  Place the chicken legs in the pan, and as you do, roll them around in the margarine so that they have a nice coating.  I like to be generous with the margarine.

    With the colder months coming up, I will definitely be trying this. I can imagine the smell of the roasted veggies and chicken roasting in the house.
