Zesty Chicken Legs

updated photo

I found this very simple recipe the other day, perfect for a weeknight dinner. I also did ours chicken legs, but think any cut would be great! I decided to grill ours outside, I love the grill! Oh! I also let mine marinade all day long for that boost of flavor.
We all liked this one! You'll have to excuse the photos, Mr. took my camera to work, and I had to use our oldest's little point & shoot pocket cam.

Zesty Seasoning Mix

1/4 cup garlic powder
1 Tablespoon paprika
1 Tablespoon lemon pepper
1 Tablespoon cumin
1 Tablespoon seasoning salt

Mix all the spices together without oil. This is your "bulk" spice. You can use the desired amount to taste. For about 12-14 drumsticks, I like to use 3 Tablespoons of the spice. The oil to spice ration is 1 Tablespoon of spice per 1 Tablespoon of oil. Mix the spices with the oil and baste over drumsticks.

To make the drumsticks:
1 Family Pack (12-14ish) chicken drumsticks
3 Talespoons zesty seasoning spices
3 Tablespoons canola oil

After basting your drumsticks on both sides of drumsticks, place in broiler on foil-lined cookie sheet with sides, or broiler pan. Make sure they are 1-2 inches apart. Broil on high for 36 minutes, turning every 12 minutes. Let sit for a few minutes before serving.

That's a good blend! Looks yummy. I think legs are my favorite part of the chicken really.

Hey there! I've been meaning to come by and visit. Your food looks so good! I now have a list of things I want to try out. Right now the BBQ salad is looking so good to me. I'm glad you liked these drummies! Grilling them is such a great idea. I love the flavor when things are grilled. Unfortunately, it's not quite grill season where we are. . . :(

You have a great blog!
