I found this recipe from a supermarket check-out line recipe booklet. The chicken is tender and flavorful and it's easy for weekday dinners when the weather is nice.

- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 4 chicken legs
- In a bowl, combine all ingredients except for chicken.
- Reserve 2 tablespoons of the marinade and set aside.
- In a large plastic freezer bag, put in chicken and marinade.
- Shake to coat and marinate for at least 4 hours or overnite.
- Remove chicken from marinade and arrange on a plate.
- Microwave the chicken for 5 minutes on high.
- Transfer chicken to grill and grill for 15 to 20 minutes over medium heat or until the juices run clear.
- As the chicken is grilling, baste with the reserved marinade.
