Very easy, tasty recipe. I half cooked the legs in the oven (25 minutes at 350) so they wouldn't get too dark on the griddler. They were quite thick legs and I was worried that they would get fully cooked before being scorched black.. They turned out perfect, lovely & moist This is a do agin recipe
