To me there’s something beguiling about a bronzed grilled chicken leg, and these most certainly fill that bill. Serve with fresh, cool, creamy (easy) Romaine Slaw for a nice contrast of tastes and textures. These grilled chicken legs are stunning picnic or potluck fare. You don’t have to tell anyone how easy they are to make!
For the best flavor, marinate the chicken at least 12 hours and up to 24 hours.
- 1 cup fresh herbs, finely chopped
- 3 tablespoons orange juice
- 2 tablespoons miso
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 8 chicken legs
- Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Mix first 6 ingredients together and pour over chicken legs, turning to coat well. Marinate for a day.
Heat grill to medium. Remove chicken legs, reserving marinade. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.
Grill chicken for 25-30 minutes, turning frequently and basting with the reserved marinade in the last 10 minutes, until cooked all the way through to the bone.
