Chicken legs, comprising the drumstick and thigh, are delectable and budget-friendly cuts. They boast rich, dark meat that remains tender and juicy when cooked. Versatile and flavourful, chicken legs can be roasted, grilled, or fried with various marinades or seasonings. Whether served as a main course or part of a hearty meal, they are a popular choice for gatherings and weeknight dinners, satisfying palates with their succulent taste and satisfying texture.
