Step 5   :    Prepare the baking tray with foil paper and grease it.  Leg pieces place it on the tray.  Now Apply Red chilli oil over the leg pieces . Place the tray in the oven and bake for 12 min.

Step 6  :      After 12 min bring the tray out of the oven and repeat chilli oil on leg pieces (this prevents the chicken from drying up).  Bring it out again and flip the leg pieces  to the other side and apply oil again. Bake it for 10 min again.  

These timing work well for me but you can increase and decrease your time, but keep an eye to prevent overcooking. )
