> > Chili Lime Chicken

Recipe Background

I came up with this recipe for Grilled Chili Lime Chicken Legs recently when I had some limes I wanted to use up along with chicken legs which had been on sale. While this recipe sounds spicy, it isn't. You certainly can add some cayenne pepper if you want a bit of a kick, but I usually leave it out so the recipe is kid friendly.

Grilled Chili Lime Chicken Legs

2# chicken legs (about 6-8 legs)
3 Tablespoons olive oil
Juice of 1 lime
2 green onions diced
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 Tablespoon honey
2 garlic cloves, minced
½ teaspoon paprika
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
¼ teaspoon salt and freshly ground black pepper

Combine marinade ingredients in a large zip style bag. Add the chicken legs. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least one hour or up to 6 hours. Grill over medium heat until fully cooked.

Serves 4
