Finishing the honey balsamic chicken -- 20 minutes

Divide the chicken legs over an oven tray lined with parchment paper en divide the marinade over the chicken. Drizzle with a bit of olive oil and roast them in the oven for about 20 minutes.

Flip them over half way through roasting so both sides will get beautifully coloured and crusty. Check if the chicken is ready and serve immediately, enjoy!
