Chili-Garlic Oven Baked Chicken Quarters

Time to spice up your kitchen with this Asian inspired dish!

Ingredients

  • 4 lbs chicken leg quarters, skin on, bone-in
  • Salt and pepper

Sauce

  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup soy sauce 
  • 2 tbsp. chili garlic sauce
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  •  juice from half a lime
  • 1 tbsp. coarse mustard
  • ½ tbsp. rice wine vinegar
  • 2 1/2 tbsp. maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Line baking sheet. Pat chicken completely dry. Place onto pan and season with salt and pepper. Pop into oven and cook for 15 minutes.
  2. Combine all sauce ingredients into a mixing bowl and use a whisk to really breakdown that peanut butter.
  3. Remove chicken from oven and baste with sauce. Lower oven temperature to 375 F and continue cooking chicken for 10 minutes. Remove and baste again. Cook for another 10-15 minutes, or until you reach 160 F on your thermometer. Broil in the end if you'd like a crispier skin.
