The convection oven I would be using was a popular model made by Breville. I'd had it for about five years and to my surprise, it was my most often used appliance! Today, I was going to attempt something a bit more complex than toast. Chicken can be a bit of a challenge, in the beginning of my learning cycle, but I have learned from past mistakes!
Washing a chicken leg, prior to cooking is optional. I like to do it as a matter of choice. I pat each piece dry with a paper towel, lay them onto a plate and them spray it piece lightly with Pam cooking spray. A bit of pepper is also added as an optional choice.

So, was I done here? Not hardly. The chicken pieces were re-coated with sauce, placed on a clean cooking rack and place back into the oven with the grill raised to the middle position. I then proceeded to broil each side for about 5 minutes in order the lightly caramelize the sauce. Now I was done!
I like to let them rest for a bit. Saw 15 minutes to cool a bit and for the meat to set. Now, where did I put that potato?
After nuking a medium sized Russet potato for about5 minutes on high, I cut it in half and added that to my plate containing two chicken legs and some fruit salad! And, yes, it was and awesome meal! my next post will cover my weight problem since my quarantine period began.
