Home chef and TikTok user @rajmin2025 shared a hack to cook chicken at home and it’s truly a game-changer. The secret? A wire rack.

In the video, @rajmin2025 has chicken legs that are spread out on the counter. She lays a wire rack over the top of them and presses the thin part of the legs through the rack.

The rack ends up acting as a chicken leg holder, so to speak. Once in the oven, the legs hang down cook evenly on all sides.

Beyond that, @rajmin2025 also placed a pan of potatoes in the oven below the legs so their drippings fall right onto the potatoes!

It’s brilliant.
