how long does it take to grill chicken legs

Report as

Chicken legs are one of the best parts of chicken because its juicy and tender and having them grilled is really something to look forward to for your outdoor lunch. Grilling chicken legs requires time cooking, patience is also part of it because you don't want to end up eating grilled chicken with burned skin and bloody meat inside. Grilling time may vary depending on some factors like the size of the chicken legs, the type of grill that will be used and the method that you ma have done prior to grilling. To avoid burning or overcooking the chicken exterior, you can have it boiled initially prior to grilling, although the downside is, it may lessen the flavor of the chicken legs once grilled but it definitely would minimize the cooking time on the grill. On the other hand, if you prefer to cook the chicken legs directly on the grill, marinating it overnight can also lessen the grilling time, the chicken will be more flavorful and the moisture and juice does not comes off. You can place the chicken legs for a couple of minutes on the grill then set them aside on the cool area of your grill and cover them. After 20 minutes you may spread your marinade on both sides of the meat and put them back on the hotter side of the grill and wait for another 20 minutes. You can use a thermometer to monitor the temperature from the inside which should be around 165 ?F, once reached, you can just work on the crispiness of your chicken legs based on your preference.
