Chicken legs are a delicious and easy-to-eat protein to serve with a meal. Learn all about this simple, versatile cut that absorbs marinade nicely, stays juicy, and is a budget-friendly way to serve chicken any night of the week.

What Are Chicken Legs?

A chicken leg comes from the leg of the chicken, all the way from claw to what would be the animal’s hip. It comes in two parts — the drumstick and the thigh — either attached together or as separate cuts (called a leg quarter).

Like the wing, this part of the bird gets a lot of exercise in comparison to other muscles, which is why Chicken Legs have darker meat

This also means a bit more fat, an addition that adds to the leg’s flavor and juiciness.

How To Cook

Chicken legs are hard to overcook, thanks to their extra fat. The whole leg is in fact the juiciest part of the bird, which makes it perfect for any application from smoking and barbecuing to braising, roasting, and slicing up to add to stir-fries.

When it comes to taking the leg off a chicken, start with a very sharp knife. Slice the blade between the body and thigh, popping the hip bone out in the process. Once the leg has been cut away, you can cook it as a leg quarter or separate the drumstick from the thigh by cutting through the joint that connects them. Try and keep the skin intact along the way so your dish can have the pleasing crackle of cooked chicken skin to go along with the tender meat.

What Does It Taste Like?

Everyone knows the phrase, “tastes like chicken,” and that’s exactly what chicken legs taste like. They tend to have a more unctuous texture and mouthfeel thanks to the dark, fatty meat. You’ll also find the flavor a little stronger than chicken breast. For the best flavor, source chicken from farms that raise them in a pasture.
