An Australian dish for grilled chicken legs!!! Mmmmm!


  1. Lightly oil grill and preheat to high.
  2. Loosen skin on chicken pieces with fingers, by sliding hand between skin and flesh.
  3. In a small skillet, saute green onion and 2 cloves garlic in butter or margarine for 1 minute. Stir in breadcrumbs and parsley.
  4. Push this seasoning under chicken skins, working it down well.
  5. Combine 1 cup butter or margarine with mustard, 1 clove garlic and curry powder.
  6. Spread this seasoned butter or margarine over chicken and put on preheated grill.
  7. Cook 10 to 15 minutes each side, or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.
  8. Brush with remaining seasoned butter while grilling.

I made the Curry Butter Chicken Thighs, for my family of three generations, from 73 to 2 years old and they all loved it. As you willnote I used Thights instead of legs and I did them in the oven. Great recipe and I will do it again

These were yummy! We enjoyed these very much. I would add a bit of salt next time. DH was in charge of stuffing the legs, and was having a hard time getting the stuffing to stay put. To solve it we stuffed the chicken leg and then used a toothpick to hold the skin opening to the meat and problem solved! We had more than enough butter for basting, could have easily done another 4 legs. thanks for posting Charmie!!
