These marinated chicken legs come out beautifully glazed and juicy, and look like a lot more work than they really are! I marinated mine for only one hour and they still turned out nicely. Also, you can add sliced and scored potatoes to the baking pan if desired, to soak up some of the juices. Note: I originally tried this recipe for one serving, so had to estimate the measurements of the marinade and stuffing. The proportions are correct, but the amounts may need adjusting for your personal taste. I also only had dried herbs on hand, but fresh would probably turn out even better!
