Blanche's Basic Baked Chicken - meat

Posted by : Blanche Nonken

3 or 4 chicken leg quarters
garlic powder
black pepper, freshly ground

Clean the chicken of the bigger lumps of fat, but leave the skin
on.  Lay flat in a 9x12 inch pan, skin up.  Sprinkle on, in this
order: salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika.  Be generous with
the paprika.  (I usually am because I make my own, and I want to
use it up before the next year's crop.)  

Bake in a hot oven, 375 to 400 degrees F, 45 minutes (if
thawed/fresh) to about an hour (if frozen) or until skin is
browned and crunchy, and juices run clear.

I have to say that the skin is the best part of this.
