The taste of this BBQ chicken is so peculiar that it won’t leave you and your loved ones indifferent! You don’t have to spend much time cooking the dish. The recipe is very simple and won’t take much time!
- chicken legs : 900 g (skin-on, bone-in)
- salt : 1 tsp
- barbecue sauce : 0.5 cup (can be replaced with any tomato- or mustard-based sauce)
- liquid smoke : 1 tsp (optional)
Stages of cooking
Start with marinating the chicken. To do that, put chicken legs into a shallow bowl and sprinkle them with salt. If you plan to use liquid smoke, add it to the BBQ sauce.
Brush the legs all over with 0.25 cup of barbecue sauce and reserve the rest. Place them into the fridge for about 30 minutes. If possible, leave them there overnight. Take the wire grill rack and put chicken legs on it. Make sure they don’t overlap and there is enough space between them.
Grill the chicken on the upper level in the oven for about 2-3 minutes on one side until the legs become golden. Then flip them on the other side and cook for 2-3 minutes more.
Then heat the oven to 148 C (300 F) and replace the rack to the medium level. Brush chicken legs with the rest of the barbeque sauce and continue baking for about 15 minutes. Then flip them on another side, brush with the sauce where needed and continue baking for 15 minutes more.
Serve hot with barbeque sauce! Enjoy!
