My daughter who is very wary about any food that she eats, ate this dish with gusto. Great dish, and easy to make. The hardest part was learning how to stuff a piece of chicken with a bone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this with chicken leg quarters and it was yummy! I made this with chicken leg quarters and it was yummy! I followed some advice and seasoned my chicken with some salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. I would also suggest cooking it covered for 10-15 minutes because the skin got pretty dark brown (but did not burn) we eat chicken quarters all of the time (because they're yummy and economical) and this was a nice change of pace from what I normally do!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a really good and different way to satisfy a craving for chicken and stuffing. This is a really good and different way to satisfy a craving for chicken and stuffing. It definitely needs the addition of salt and pepper in the stuffing and on the chicken prior to baking, but other than that, the recipe is fantastic. This was a really economical meal for me to make, too, since chicken quarters go on sale at my grocery store for an outrageously inexpensive price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I found the mixture to be very mushy and not too tasty. I found the mixture to be very mushy and not too tasty. We LOVE chicken legs, but usually just eat them with some salt, pepper, and garlic powder. The good part was that the skin remained very crispy. I think I will just use the stuffing mixture in chicken breasts next time.

It was a little difficult to stuff the chicken legs but nothing I couldn't handle! I also poured a little melted butter over it and turned on the broiler to give it one last crisp.
