My recipe for Lemon Pepper Chicken leg quarters is easy and delicious! If you have a pack of leg quarters in the freezer or if you want an idea for some chicken leg quarters that you are planning to buy, I got you covered.

This is such a top tier weeknight dinner recipe. Baking chicken in the oven that has been seasoned well is a dish that I make at least 2-3 times a week.

How to make this fool proof – make sure you use my all purpose seasoning ( and also use my fave Lemon Pepper seasoning – it’s by McCormick Perfect Pinch
