Chicken breasts are great and all. But I’m all about Chicken Legs.

They contain more fat, which means more flavor. And my One Pan Chicken Legs with Quinoa are big on flavor.

That’s because you’re adding aromatic spices like cinnamon, coriander, and turmeric. You’re also adding red pepper flakes for heat.

The dried cranberries add zing. Your tastebuds will be on cloud nine.
