The key to this easy, baked chicken quarter recipe is all in the marinade. We like to marinate the chicken for 24-36 hours for the best flavor. This recipe is so simple yet full of flavor. Our whole family loves this one! We serve it with a side of egg noodles and snap peas~ but any sides work well with this chicken. I hope you enjoy!
