Crispy Adobo & Sazon Baked Chicken

crispy baked chicken

My fiancĂ© is Puerto Rican which means almost everything he makes for us has some kind of Spanish flair to it. He gave me his recipe for this adobo and sazon baked chicken and I have been making it (and devouring it) ever since! 

raw chicken quarters

For this recipe, I use chicken quarters (the drum and thigh). I prefer this to just thighs because I feel satisfied just eating one.

I begin the recipe by spreading butter over the chicken. This is optional, but in my opinion it adds more flavor and makes the chicken more crispy.

I then add the sazon and adobo over the butter and throw the chicken in the oven to bake!

This recipe is super simple and unbelievably delicious. I love that it takes minimal prep and only four ingredients.

I serve my chicken with rice and beans! In just 50 minutes you can have a delicious and (semi)healthy Spanish meal!
