* If you want to marinate instead of using a dry rub you should prepare legs, add into gallon freezer bag with sauce and put into fridge for 6-8 hours before cooking *
Put 1 chicken leg on cutting board on it's side and cut off the top 1" thru the bone and meat so it is now flat on that end. Push the meat down so the bone is naked. Do this for all the pcs. you want to bake.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lay non stick aluminum foil on a baking sheet (or use non stick sheet) and set aside.
One at a time brush olive oil on each piece (on the skin and meat end), then liberally sprinkle your dry rub or seasoning all over the skin and the flat end of your meat.
Sit on your baking sheet with the flat/cut end facing down until they are all coated. Use small pieces of foil to wrap each bone end, not covering up any skin or meat below.
Bake at 400 F for 20 minutes total or until internal temp. reaches 165 F. at it's thickest part. * If you want to brush bbq sauce on each one, do so 5 minutes before they are done (at minute 15) so that can brown and get sticky wonderful.
Remove, allow to cool at least 5 minutes, then serve with foil in tact so the holding end is cooled to the touch.
