Oven Baked Chicken Legs

We were running out of the gas in the grill when my son insisted on having Chicken. I did not have any option but to try something with chicken and I remembered one of Suja Sugathan's Kitchen corner Recipe. It was an oven baked tandoori chicken.I made some changes and omitted some of the ingredients as I was lazy. It came out super soft and moist, and tasted entirely different from the grilled chicken as we use the gram flour. I still prefer the grilled chicken for its taste and its more healthier, because the baked chicken was bit oily,  but this sure is an option to try and  my son absolutely loved it.

Chicken legs-  6 nos

First marinadeKashmiri chili powder
Ginger- garlic paste
few drops of lemon juice
salt to taste

Second marinadeGram flour- 6 tsp
Ginger garlic paste
Chicken masala powder

Method:*Make a marinade with "first marinade" and add the beef to the it, mix and leave to marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes.
*Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a pan and add gram flour to it. Roast it to get a good flavour, Make sure the flour doesn't burn.Take the pan out and add other ingredients in the "second marinade" except oil.
*Add the Chicken legs into the roasted gram-masala mix. Brush with more oil on top. Leave this chicken in Fridge for few hours.
*Preheat oven to 450 degree F and place the chicken on a greased baking tray. Cook for 10 minutes and then turn around and cook for another 10 minutes.Reduce to 250 degree F and bake for another 10 more minutes. Serve Hot
