Chicken lovely legs recipe

These delicious lovely legs are marinated in garlic, soy and honey and then oven-baked for a delicious budget family meal.



  • 8 chicken lovely legs
  • 1 cup (250ml)  pear, apple, or orange juice
  • 1 tbsp ginger powder
  • 1 tbsp crushed garlic
  • 2 tbsp  honey
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce


Place the chicken legs in an oven dish big enough to fit them all side by side.

Mix the marinade ingredients in a jar and pour over the chicken, turn to coat.

Cover and allow to marinate in the fridge for up to one day.

Preheat oven to 220°C (200°C fan-forced) Bake for 40 minutes, 20 minutes covered, then uncover and turn the legs and bake for a further 20 minutes uncovered.

Allow to cool and serve with vegetables and pasta or rice.


  • I find the pear juice from tinned fruit works well.
  • If you don’t have time to marinate the chicken just make it anyway. It still tastes delicious.
