  • 2 Teaspoons Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • 2 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • ½ teaspoon Thyme Leaves
  • 4 chicken leg quarters


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • Pat the chicken quarters dry and trim off any excess fat pieces, leaving the skin intact. Combine all of the spices in a small bowl and rub them all over (top, bottom, sides) of the chicken. Place the chicken on a sheet pan and spray with olive oil or cooking spray.
  • Bake at 425°F for 45 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the chicken is 165°F.
