We love grilling out in the summer and with July 4th just around the corner we wanted to share a Grill-a-Meal with you! This meal is perfect for your summer BBQ’s, especially this holiday weekend!
Chicken legs are an inexpensive and easy alternative to burgers. We got a pack of 14 for about $5, but if you watch for sales you can find them even cheaper than that! Just add a couple of quick sides and voila- dinner is served.
Since your outside, hanging out with your friends and family, just throw dessert on the grill too! That way you don’t have to worry about heating up the house or walking away from the grill. You can just relax and let dinner cook as you enjoy being outdoors and your freedom, because that is what this holiday is really about!
– Chicken Legs
– Olive Oil
– McCormick Montreal Steak Seasoning
Exact amounts of each will vary based on the sized crowd you are feeding.
1. Place chicken legs in a Ziploc bag. Add enough olive oil to coat the chicken legs. (We had 14 large legs and used about 1/4 cup)
2. Sprinkle with Montreal Steak seasoning. Apply liberally. (We used about 3 tablespoons for 14 legs)
3. Place on the grill on medium heat. Cook until done. Internal temperature should reach 165 degrees.
For the chicken legs, we used a standing rack. It takes up less room and cooks the chicken more evenly. It’s also nice not to have to babysit it as much as the traditional method, although they will taste just as yummy!
