This recipe OMITS the Time the chicken should be cooked, a fairly important point.

I had to tweak the sweet/sour ingredients a little bit til they were how I wanted them. I baked the chicken legs in the oven at 350f for about 40mins (they were pretty big, thick and meaty), basting every so often with the salsa sauce. Since I used a combination of salsa and picante sauce, they were too spicy for me, but Husband loved them. Served with a cucumber/corn salad, and sweet potato fries. Not bad at all. Thanks, Beverley!


I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil and added hot sauce as suggested in reviews, as well as a dash of red pepper flakes. Also baked instead of grilling and used chicken breast pieces. Loved it! The vinegar was pretty strong but I really enjoyed that. Will definitely make this again!
