Cooking chicken legs in the oven with mushrooms:

Step 1: prepare chicken legs.

Rinse and chop off excess and roughened chicken skin. Wipe clean legs with disposable paper towels. Salt the chicken with one teaspoon of salt and add a little black pepper as well. Rub seasonings over the whole area of ​​the legs. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius and put the chicken in a special heat-resistant baking sheet. If desired, you can also sprinkle chicken legs with olive oil on top of them before baking, so that a juicy, crispy crust forms on them in the process. Send the legs to the oven bake on 30 minutes, and at this time proceed to the next step.

Step 2: prepare the mushrooms, onions and garlic.

Put the champignon mushrooms in a colander, simultaneously sorting them out and cutting off the darkening. Rinse this ingredient under running water and shake to get rid of excess moisture. Cut the champignons thus cleaned into thin slices or small cubes.
Peel the onions as well, cutting off the tips. Chop clean vegetables in small cubes.
Remember the cloves of garlic in your fingers a little, so that afterwards it is easier to peel the husks from them. Chopped peeled garlic in thin slices. You can also grind it with a grater or a special press.

Step 3: stew the mushrooms in sour cream.

Now you need to prepare a cream-mushroom dressing. To do this, melt butter in a high-field pan. Then add chopped champignons, as well as chopped onions and garlic. Fry everything over medium heat 10 minutes.

After most of the liquid has evaporated and the specified time has passed, add 1 tablespoon wheat flour and mix well. And also, continuing to mix all the ingredients, pour cold water into the pan with a thin stream. Break all the formed flour lumps. Add sour cream, salt and spices. Bring the resulting mixture over medium or low heat to a state where it is ready to boil, but do not let it do this, immediately remove the pan from the heat.

Step 4: cook chicken legs in the oven with mushrooms.

The time required to prepare the chicken has passed, so open the oven and slightly extend the baking sheet with half-prepared legs. Pour the chicken legs with the resulting mushroom sauce and send back to the oven for another 25-30 minutes. After bringing the chicken to full readiness, take it out and proceed with serving.

Step 5: serve chicken legs with mushrooms.

Oven-cooked chicken legs with mushrooms are served on the table as a hot dish. Usually I offer boiled rice or mashed potatoes to them as a side dish. Do not forget to thoroughly pour the sauce in the sauce that accumulated on the bottom of the pan. That's all, enjoy a delicious chicken with a delicate mushroom aroma.
