How Long Do You Boil Chicken Legs?


Chicken legs are inexpensive and can be made for lunch or dinner. They can be grilled, baked, roasted, fried, or broiled. To boil chicken legs, place them in a pot with some salt, celery, and onions, then cover with water. Boil the legs for as long as one hour to cook thoroughly. Once done, the chicken can be removed and noodles can be added and boiled in the same water to be used a side dish.

Depending on the thickness of the legs, they should boil for about 20 minutes. Make sure to salt the water and that they are cooking at a rolling boil. If they aren't completely cooked after 20 minutes, return them to the pot and boil them at 5 minute intervals.
