Spicy Balsamic Chicken Legs

Need a flavorful and easy dish for a weeknight dinner with your loved one (or roomie!!)? These chicken legs will satisfy that need and hit the spot for flavor! Not only is it cost effective, is only 4 ingredients and takes no time to prep! I also love chicken legs because they are so juicy and don’t become dry like chicken breasts. They are also not overly spicy; they are the perfect amount of spice and tang from the balsamic vinegar...the perfect flavor combo in my opinion.

Pair these chicken legs with a nice salad, a side of pasta and or roasted vegetables. I ate my legs with air frier butternut squash zig zags (they look like fries) from Trader Joe’s. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

6 Chicken Legs

1 1/2 tbsp Trader Joe’s Italian Bomba Hot Pepper Sauce Fermented Crushed Calabrian Chili Peppers
