Preparation Time: 5-10 minutes. Marinating Time: 30 minutes or more. Grilling Time: 45 minutes
Juice of 1-2 lemons or about 2-3 Tablespoons fresh juice (I’ve also used a combo of lemons and limes)
1 Tablespoon dried oregano
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
6-8 chicken legs (skin on or off, your preference)
Place the first 6 ingredients in a zip style bag. Gently squeeze the bag near the contents to mix them together. Place chicken legs in the bag, seal, and turn the bag so that the marinade coats all of the legs. Place the bag in a bowl in the refrigerator (to prevent leaks!) and allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes or up to 10 hours (whatever you have time for).
Grill until chicken is thoroughly cooked (about 40-45 minutes with medium heat)
