Mock Jerk Style Chicken Legs

READY IN: 2hrs 45mins
Recipe by Robin Batterson

My inspiration for this recipe is a jerk type of marinade...i did it in the oven but it could easily be done on the grill also.

I loved this jerk chicken, great flavors, everything blended beautifully together, nothing was over powering. The spices and herb worked well together. The chicken was tender and juicy, with a great savory flavor. Beautiful served with Irish Soda bread, watermelon and bbq corn on the cob. Really nice use of the contest ingredients, good luck in the contest. I marinaded the chicken for two hours and baked in the oven. Made for RSC #18
