Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.  Line a half-sheet pan (aka cookie sheet) with parchment paper or foil

  • Spread vegetables out on the prepared sheet pan. Add the chicken legs on top of vegetables. Drizzle oil over the chicken legs and over any vegetables that might still look dry. Sprinkle remaining 2 Tbsp over the chicken legs.
