Last week I got a steal of a deal at H-E-B on chicken legs.  Oh, the things adults get excited about.  Ok, so I hardly ever cook with chicken legs.  Most of the time I use chicken breasts, and occasionally, I’ll use chicken thighs.  But seriously, I couldn’t pass up this deal and I figure with just the two of us, I could get 5 or 6 meals out of one package.  

12 of the Best Chicken Leg Recipes

So, with no real idea of how what to make with all of those chicken legs, besides throwing them on the grill with some BBQ, I took to Pinterest (duh) and gathered up some yummy ideas.  And, since I am such a generous person, I thought I’d share them with you!  You can thank me later.
