What Are Chicken Quarters?
Juicy, tender roasted chicken leg quarters are delicious, easy to prepare and easy on the budget. The leg quarter is made up of the drumstick, thigh and part of the chicken’s back. Why is it called a quarter? Simple. It consists of about a quarter of the whole bird.
This cut is unique because the different parts are still attached. Each piece cooks perfectly along with the other, and they bake up like a dream!
