Saucy Chicken Legs

Cris 1 Comment

Are you looking for a tasty homemade barbecue sauce to dress up some legs, wings or thighs? This versatile dish for Saucy Chicken Legs is best for the grill and the oven alike.

I modified this extremely yummy, finger-lickin’ excellent dish (that was originally meant for the oven) to formulate on my grill. I discovered the original dish in Gooseberry Patch’s Weeknight Dinners Cookbook and thought it would go nicely in our On the Lighter Side Series.

Since I was lightening this up, I skinned my chicken legs.

Now, I typically love me some charred chicken skin on the grill, so there will probably be a not so light variation of this yummy dish to hit my grill eventually this summertime. However, for this meal we went skinless.

The original recipe calls for you to integrate all the components, coat the chicken and location in a baking pan. Put remaining sauce over the top– yum! Then you bake for 45-50 minutes at 375.

Instead, I grilled up my chicken and basted it with the sauce about 20 minutes into grilling. The legs should cook to an internal temp minimum of 165 to be safe, although I personally prefer the texture of a bird cooked to 170-180 The completely grilling time, depending upon leg size, is normally 30 minutes.
