Lemon and Garlic Chicken Legs



8 chicken legs (not drumettes)
1 Tbsp. olive oil
Zest of 1 lemon
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 Tbsp. minced garlic
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper


Preheat oven to 450 F. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil and spray foil with nonstick cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl, toss chicken legs with all remaining ingredients. Transfer the coated legs to the prepared sheet pan. Bake for 35 minutes, flipping halfway through. Chicken legs are done when a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 175 F. Serves 4.
