  • 6 whole chicken legs or combination of thighs and drums


  • 6 tbs ketchup
  • 2 tbs tomato paste
  • 2 tbs whole-grain dijon mustard
  • 3 tbs Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbs honey
  • 1 clove garlic crushed


  • Mix all marinade ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Take a sharp knife and make a couple of shallow slits on the top of the chicken legs (on the skin side). Place chicken in a large zipper freezer bag and pour in the marinade. Massage bag so marinade evenly coats chicken. Refrigerate at least 4 hours, but preferably overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (400 if using a convection oven). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place chicken on prepared pan, skin side up, and spoon remaining marinade evenly over chicken.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes, until chicken is brown (it will singe around the edges, that’s what you want) and the juices run clear—165 degrees internally.
