Spicy Roasted Chicken Legs with Lemon

Last week we were spoiled rotten by Jeffrey's parents when they took us to the St. Regis Resort in Dana Point. We had a blast! The hotel was incredible. Here we are at breakfast our first morning.
 Pool Time!
 The beach was a little cool the first day. We enjoyed mojitos for lunch each day at the private beach.

 Dinner at the private beach club. We watch a beautiful sun set over the ocean.
 Cheers!

 The view of the private beach from the tram that would drive us down.
 Look at that sky!!

Toes in the sand!
 It was still a little chilly that morning so I was covered up, but I wanted to get my toes in the water!
 Breakfast view on our 3rd morning there. I still can't get over how beautiful it was!
 After a message at the spa we went to the beach for the 3rd time. This time it was much warmer, and my favorite beach day! I love Mommasita's face here.
 J loves playing in the ocean.
 J and his Daddio!
 Sweet couple!
 The golf course at the resort.
 We LOVED the turn down service every night, complete with robes and slippers.
 Here we are right before we left. We didn't want to go!

I have said this before, every time I watch Pioneer Woman's show on Food Network, I have a new recipe to try. Here are some really easy chicken legs! Enjoy!

Spicy Roasted Chicken Legs with Lemon
1 stick butter
2 Lemons
2 garlic cloves
1 tsp cayenne pepper
4-6 chicken legs
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 425.
Melt butter in a small saucepan.
Remove from heat.
Add juice of 2 lemons, cayenne pepper and a 1/4 tsp of salt and black pepper to the butter. 

Rinse chicken legs and pat dry.

Dip each chicken leg in the butter mixture and then place in a baking dish.


Once they are all in a baking dish, brush the top of the chicken with more seasoned butter.
Place in the oven for 10 minutes, remove and baste with more butter. Place back in the oven and repeat twice more so that the chicken cooks for 30 minutes. Check and see if you need to cook for 5-10 more minutes. Slice into the chicken and the juice should run clear.

Serve with a slice of lemon.
