Excellent chicken dinner and super easy! After a hard day at work, I was glad to have a grill recipe to cook for dinner. The marinating/basting sauce is tasty and worked well with the chicken legs. I absolutely love the grilled potato slabs!! What a great idea. Thanks for posting this winner! Made for the May 2013 Aus/NZ Swap.
