Here is what you’ll need to make this easy Montreal Chicken Recipe:
Chicken legs for protein. I prefer to use bone-in chicken, but if you’d like to use chicken wings or chicken thighs, either one of them works as well (but may need more or less time to cook).
Montreal chicken spice for all of the tasty flavor! If you have Montreal steak seasoning, that works as well.
Sea salt and ground black pepper for extra flavor.
Olive oil and mayonnaise for the marinade. Olive oil is better to use than any other vegetable oil in this chicken recipe.
Tomato paste adds a great flavor to the marinade and the chicken meat.
Montreal chicken seasoning spice mixture has garlic powder, dried onion, salt, black pepper, parsley, red pepper flakes, orange peel, and green bell pepper. This spice blend can be found at any grocery store, labeled McCormick Grill Mates Montreal Chicken Seasoning. It’s one of the best spice rubs to use for baked chicken recipes.
Montreal chicken seasoning is perfect to add right in the beginning to the simple marinade. It can sit with the chicken and the flavors will get infused into the baked chicken.
Montreal chicken is cooked in the oven for 40 minutes at 350F. For the last few minutes of cooking, you can broil it.
