Grilled Chicken Legs

For a spicy change from the same old barbecue chicken, try these Grilled Chicken Legs with a savory marinade made of Dijon mustard, honey, vinegar and a touch of brown sugar.


  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp canola oil
  • 1 Tbsp dark brown sugar
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 4 chicken leg quarters


  • Combine ketchup, Dijon mustard, honey, vinegar and oil in a large mixing bowl.
  • Stir in the brown sugar until dissolved.
  • Whisk in Worcestershire sauce, dry mustard, paprika, garlic and onion powders, salt and cayenne.
  • Place chicken legs into a sealable plastic bag. Pour in the marinade.
  • Squeeze out as much air as possible and seal the bag.
  • Turn to coat the legs and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Turn often.
  • Discard excess marinade after removing legs from the bag.
  • Grill bone side down over medium indirect heat for 40 minutes.
  • For a crisper chicken place the leg quarters skin side down on direct heat for the last 10 minutes of the grilling time.
  • Chicken is cooked through when the juices run clear.
