Spicy Roasted Chicken

I'm a huge fan of roasting chicken. Here's my take on roasting chicken leg quarters in a Dutch oven with a kick! It's defined the term WINNER! WINNER! CHICKEN DINNER!

4 chicken leg quarters (skinless) - about 2-3 lbs
2 tbsp of brown sugar
1 1/2 tbsp of smoked paprika
1/2 tbsp garlic pepper
1/2 tsp of garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup EVOO

remove skins from quarters. Make 3-4 deep scores on each leg. Place all in gradients in large zip tight bag, shake well and marinate for about 15 minutes.
Coat Dutch oven well with EVOO, place marinated chicken inside. Back at 275 degrees for 35 minutes, lid off.

Cooking tip: Prep night before for a fast weeknight dinner!
