Ingredients

Scale
  • 8 chicken legs
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 1 lime
  • 20 grams mint, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  1. Mix lime, mint, garlic, salt, paprika, pepper in a freezer bag or container
  2. Add chicken legs and put into fridge for at least 2 hours and preferebly overnight
  3. Preheat grill to 375° Fahrenheit with an area for indirect cooking

  6. Grill for 30 minutes or until 165° Fahrenheit

Notes

  • Make sure to cook over indirect grill heat
  • When transferring from marinade to grill, allow most of the marinade to fall from the leg. You don't have to wipe anything down, but you don't want a bunch of dripping from the leg that could cause flare-ups.
  • Ensure your grill is clean and oiled before cooking to help ensure the meat does not stick.
  • Remove the legs when they hit 165° Fahrenheit.
