What a treat this recipe is! Lovely flavor - I marinated it all day . Then grilled it on my Griddler - came out perfect. The leg was a very small one just enough for 2 servings. I added some parsley that I stuffed inside. Served with garden fresh carrots, Beans and tiny potatoes. Thanks Oolala for nother MMM recipe
