How many pieces is one portion? Is one quarter of the chicken considered one portion, or one of the piece, cut in half? Thanks jeanl

Hi, The portion size is really up to you, but I'd say typically 1 quarter leg is one portion. I hope that helps!

@gas11 7461924, 425 degrees F. Be sure to let us know how it turns out! --Editor of RecipeLion

What temperature do you cook the chicken on for 50 minutes to achieve desired doneness?

Recipe says 425 F
