5 mins
45 mins
  • Preheat the grill. Coat the surface of the chicken legs with canola oil.
  • Place the chicken legs on the preheated grill. Baste the legs with melted butter and then season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Grill the legs until they begin to brown on the first side. Turn and baste with butter again.
  • Continue to grill and turn the legs as each side browns. Baste with melted butter after each turn.
  • Once the legs are nicely browned, check for doneness. Poke with a fork and if juices run clear (not pink) they should be done. You can also check with a thermometer. It should read 175° F. when done and then be allowed to set for 10 to 15 minutes. The temperature should rise to 180° F. after setting.

"Great legs! I really liked the fact that these chicken legs did not have a lot of different seasonings or sauce on them. The skin was crispy and the chicken was moist. Best of all, you could taste the flavor of the grilled chicken."
