Strawberry Balsamic Baked Chicken Legs

Nothing says I love you like a big chicken leg.

 Especially a big chicken leg still on the bone so you can both devour it in a completely animalistic way. Because you know if they see you eat something so un-lady like and still take you out to eat, they’re a keeper. It’s love. You’ve found happily ever after.

And this recipe is just so perfect, it not only has strawberries, but if you cross them together they even look like a heart! How romantic is that?
