  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place chicken legs in a deep, large baking dish. Massage 1 tablespoon olive oil onto each chicken leg. Squeeze lemon juice over the chicken. Arrange lemons around the chicken.
  3. Mix oregano, basil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; sprinkle evenly over each chicken leg, flipping the chicken to season both sides.
  4. Cook chicken in the preheated oven until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 1 hour 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

I have been making this for years. This is a family favorite. I also add potatoes cut into wedges with the chicken to cook. Make a nice salad to complete the meal. You can't go wrong with th...

I have never left a rating for any recipe before but after making this recipe every week for a couple months I felt I should share my experience. You see, I have six children ages 6-16 and after...

This flavor combination is worth 10 stars! Use the seasoning and lemon to taste and this will be one of your favorite ways to cook chicken. For 12 chicken legs, I lightly coat with olive oil a...

This is the first Greek dish I've ever eaten, and it just may be the most delicious chicken I've ever had in my life! I didn't have lemons so subbed 2T lemon juice for each lemon. I had five leg...
