4 servings (serving size: 2 drumsticks)

Budget-friendly chicken legs get a kick from a marinade of citrus juices and soy sauce before grilling.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine the first 11 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add chicken to bag; seal. Marinate in refrigerator 2 hours, turning bag occasionally.

Step 2

Prepare grill.

Step 3

Remove chicken from bag, reserving marinade. Place reserved marinade in a small saucepan; cook over medium heat 3 minutes. Place chicken on grill coated with cooking spray; grill 30 minutes or until chicken is done, turning and basting occasionally with reserved marinade. Garnish with green onion strips, if desired.

If you have everything on hand, then sure, why not. But not worth buying the ingredients for.

Ok.. not bad, but not great either. There are better recipes out there.

Delicious! I didn't have sherry or basil oil, substituted red cooking wine and vegetable oil (in slightly smaller measurements). Marinated for 4 hours. Used skin-on drumsticks, peeled off blackened crispy skin once grilled to reveal tasty, moist chicken underneath. Kids loved it too. 30 minutes over low heat was right time estimate. Really nice change from boneless breasts & boneless thighs!

I have made this several times, a good way to cook chicken drumsticks. Have both broiled and baked them, plan to try grilled this summer. And easy recipe to prepare, legs stand up to longer marination with out problems. The drumsticks come out tender and tasty, serve with brown rice and a green vegie as a side.
