Is this Pin a Win?- Sweet and Spicy Roasted Chicken Legs

We are going to start a recurring featuring named:


Last week I was scrolling through Pinterest and my husband passed by behind me and was excited to try a recipe by one of my friends' pins for sweet and spicy roasted chicken legs.

 On Monday I made them for dinner and they only turned out okay. I triple checked the recipe but my legs just didn't end up as seasoned as hers look. 

Some points about the recipe:
  • Getting skin off chicken legs is extremely frustrating. It is slippery and germy and really hard!
  • When I put this in my 9x13 it was way too big. It would have been much better in a 8x8 or 9x9
  • I think they should have been marinated longer and cooked at a higher temperature because they dried out but still weren't done cooking so I had to add an extra 10 minutes to the cooking time and the outsides dried out a bit. 
  • They probably would be really good grilled as well

I'm not sure why mine doesn't look like hers...at all, when I followed the recipe the recipe so closely. They were disappointing and I think I would find a different recipe to try maybe combining with/tweaking this one.

Have you tried any Pins lately?

Have a great weekend! Are going to be watching?
