  • Pour marinade into a resealable plastic bag. Add chicken, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 8 hours to overnight.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Remove chicken from the marinade and shake off excess. Set the remaining marinade aside.

  • Cook chicken on the preheated grill, brushing occasionally with reserved marinade, until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, 25 to 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

You can substitute chicken breasts, or wings for the chicken drumsticks and thighs, if you'd like, but I think chicken legs work the best.

Great flavor! The only problem with this recipe as written is that I used 2 pounds of chicken instead of the 1 pound it called for and there was still enough leftover that it would have covered 3 pounds. Scale it back or add more chicken and you'll have the perfect barbecued favorite. Read More
