Juicy Chicken Leg Quarters

This juicy chicken leg quarters recipe is super easy and the flavor is amazing. The chicken will be tender and juicy and the skin comes out so crispy! YUM! Chicken leg quarters are relatively inexpensive and I stocked up on a whole bunch of them that were on sale last week and then marked an additional 30% off due to it being the sell-by date. They made for a super easy sheet pan dinner!

Gather up your ingredients.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a sheet pan with aluminum foil. Place a baking rack on top of the aluminum foil. (this helps the air circulate underneath the chicken and aids in easy clean up)

Without removing the skin from the bone, peel it back to expose the meat underneath. Brush the exposed chicken meat with soy sauce, then sprinkle half the garlic salt seasoning and dill onto the meat.
