preparation of baked chicken legs

After the marinade has elapsed, put the chicken to bake at 180 degrees . The cooking time depends on the size of the pieces. But calculate about 40 minutes to start (always checking that they are not going to burn, some ovens lie with the temperatures indicated and are treacherous).

Approximately halfway through cooking turn the pieces of chicken to brown on both sides.

Once the 40 minutes have passed, and after verifying that they were indeed well cooked, serve the baked chicken legs accompanied by your favorite rice recipe. If you want you can add more soy sauce on the plate. Decorate with fresh coriander and enjoy your meal.
