Wash chicken legs dry, rub with salt, white pepper, and bouillon powder and set aside
In a small pan set over medium-low heat, combine canola oil, minced garlic, fresh herbs, smoked paprika, and cayenne pepper. Stir for about 30 seconds or 1 minute. Let this mixture sit for a little bit about 5 minutes.
When ready to bake, preheat oven to 425°.
Place the chicken in a large bowl, toss with garlic paprika spice mix, then sprinkle with the onion powder.
Line a baking pan with foil; top with a wire rack. Arrange chicken legs out in a single layer.
Bake chicken legs until cooked through and skin is crispy about 40-45 minutes
If desired rotate chicken halfway through-roughly 25 minutes. And continue cooking until chicken is fully cooked and juice from the chicken runs clear.
Remove and let it cool slightly before serving.
