This is a perfect week-night dinner recipe for the grill, total time from start to finish should be well under 90 minutes, with a cook time of 1 hour.
Here is what you will need:
Some Type of Grill
Chicken Leg Quarters
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Start out by giving the chicken leg quarters a quick rinse and dry, trim off any loose bits and excess fat as well.
Now go ahead and apply a liberal coat of olive oil, then a heavy dusting of a ‘rub’ made from equal parts garlic powder and onion powder. It does not get much easier that this, we are ready to put this chicken on the grill.
Set up for indirect heat here, I cook this recipe with gas and have the two outside burners set about medium-low and the center burner off, the ideal grill temperature is about 375F. To reduce flare-ups I put the chicken on the 2nd rack, and in the center of the grill of course. Time on the grill should be right at an hour, but you are looking for 175F to 180F in the thigh. I also place the pieces skin down on direct heat for the last 5 minutes or so, to crisp things up just a bit.
This recipe produces a great tasting result with very little work in a reasonable amount of time, I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
