Grilled Chicken Legs Recipe – Chicken recipes are usually a crowd-pleaser and this smooth grilled chicken leg recipe turns into a favorite! Maybe it’s that chicken legs are in order that simple and homey, comforting, and delicious.

Place chicken legs into a large zip-top bag.
Pour the chicken marinade over the chicken legs in the zip-top bag. Remove as much air as possible from the bag and seal. Turn the bag from side to side to make sure all chicken has been coated with the marinade.

Place the bag flat on a small, rimmed kitchen sheet pan and into the refrigerator. Allow to sit up to 1 hour or overnight for best results, turning the bag over every few hours to keep the chicken coated.

To Grill Chicken Legs:
Brush the grill grate with olive oil to coat. Heat the grill to about 350º F. Place chicken onto the grill and cook, turning as needed to cook both sides, until the internal temperature registers 165º F when checked with an instant-read thermometer.
Remove chicken to a serving platter and allow to rest 3-5 minutes before serving.
Time does not include time to marinate chicken.
