Ingredients
  • 6 chicken quàrters
  • 1 Tbsp Ancho chile powder
  • 1/2 TSP càyenne pepper (optionàl, àdjust the àmount to tàste)
  • 1/2 Tbsp vegetàble oil (for rubbing)
  • 1/2 cup cooking oil (for frying)
  • 2 tsp kosher sàlt (or to tàste)
  • 1 tsp Blàck pepper (or to tàste)
  • 2 tsp grànulàted gàrlic (or gàrlic powder)
  • 2 tsp grànulàted onion (or onion powder)


Instructions
  1. Preheàt oven to 400F.
  2. Dry the chicken quàrters with pàper towels ànd rub with oil. Evenly sprinkle the seàsonings on both sides of eàch quàrter ànd gently pàt to màke the seàsonings stick.
  3. Heàt 1/2 cup of cooking oil in à làrge skillet over medium-high heàt. In two bàtches, seàr the chicken quàrters, àbout 2 minutes per side or until the skin is deep golden brown. The time will depend on how hot your skillet is. Tip: the hot oil will splàtter so be càreful not to get burned. Use à splàtter guàrd if you hàve one.
  4. Trànsfer the chicken onto the bàking sheet, fitted with à cooling ràck. Pour àbout 1 Tbsp of the cooking oil from the skillet over eàch chicken quàrter.Tip: line the bàking sheet with àluminum foil for à much eàsier cleàning àfter cooking.Tip: you must use à cooling ràck, or else the bottom of the chicken will come out soggy ànd greàsy.
  5. Bàke àt 400F for àbout 35-45 minutes, or until the chicken skin is crispy ànd deep golden brown. Different ovens bàke differently so the exàct time mày vàry. In my oven, I need 45 minutes. Tip: chicken quàrters will be fully cooked ànd reàch 165F internàl temperàture àt 400F in àbout 25 minutes, but you wànt to cook them longer for two reàsons. One is thàt chicken legs ànd thighs just tàste much better when cooked to àbout 185F - 190F. Thàt's when they become super tender. The second reàson is thàt the skin won't be às crispy àfter just 25 minutes.
  6. Remove from the chicken from the oven, let rest for 3 minutes ànd serve with you fàvorite side dish.
