  1. Chicken legs need to be cooked longer than 15 minutes especially if they're bone-in to prevent salmonella poisoning. Is this recipe for boneless chicken legs?

    1. Hello, as you see instruction # 2, brown the chicken first before you jump in # 4 and 5. Plus instruction # 5, simmer for 5 minutes or till chicken is fully cooked. My chicken was cut into serving size so it was cooked right. Sorry about the confusion.
