Welcome to the forum!

I'm not a furniture restoration expert, but I'll give you my thoughts.

If you want to reuse the leg, I think you'd want to add a new dowel/tenon end to it.

You'd also have to clean up the bottom of the chair. Drill out the broken piece and put a fresh piece of wood in the hole.

Get a hardwood dowel a bit smaller than the leg.

Drill out the leg, being careful to keep the hole nice and straight.

Drill out the same size hole in the bottom of the chair, being careful to get the angle right.

Glue them back together.
