What are you serving at your annual Halloween BOO-ffet? As you already know, the rules for Halloween BOO-ffet dishes are that they must be of the highest quality and also be delicious, but can have scary names to set the mood (no real bugs or worms, nothing spoiled or rotten, and nothing inedible or terrible tasting). Foul Fetid Femurs fill the bill perfectly, since they are simply chicken legs with a sticky honey mustard sauce. I always use them as leg bones when I feature an edible dead body, and in past years they have been gobbled up quickly.
These chicken legs are not only easy, but good all year round; during non-Halloween times, you’ll want to call them Sticky Honey Mustard Legs. The glaze can also be used for bone-in chicken breasts or chicken wings, but neither look like leg bones, so you will most likely want to avoid using them at Halloween as a body component. Even if you’re not planning a Halloween BOO-ffet, these Foul Fetid Femurs are a nice change from chili or soup, and are great served with Ghostly Potato Puffs and a slimy green vegetable.
3 pounds chicken legs
6 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 1/2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
1 teaspoon dry mustard
- Preheat the oven to 375°.
- Place the chicken legs in a single layer in a shallow baking dish.

- Mix the honey and mustards; microwave 45 seconds or until the honey is melted; stir and pour over the legs.
- Stir the legs until they are coated with the honey mustard mixture and return them to the oven and bake 5 minutes; stir, then continue baking 5-10 additional minutes or until brown and sticky.
