What’s for Dinner: Oriental Grilled Chicken Leg Quarters

It’s been a while since I posted a What’s for Dinner recipe. We’re just too busy enjoying the outdoors to spend a lot of time in the kitchen cooking. But I had some chicken leg quarters I wanted grill. There’s no better piece of chicken to cook on the grill. The dark meat and high fat content keep it moist and tender. This was simple and yummy. Make a double batch because the leftovers are good cold from the fridge too.

Oriental Grilled Chicken Leg Quarters Recipe

1/2 cup Miracle Whip® Salad Dressing
1 T. soy sauce
1/4 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. ground red pepper
4 boneless Chicken Leg Quarters (about 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 pounds)

Preparation –

Whisk together the salad dressing, soy sauce, and seasonings. Spray the grill rack with non-stick cooking spray. Place the chicken on the prepared grill, about 8″ above the coals. Brush with half of the sauce. Turn over and grill for about 20 minutes. Brush with the remaining sauce, turn and continue grilling about 20 more minutes or until the chicken is tender and juices run clear. Use a meat thermometer to make sure the chicken reaches an internal temperature in the thickest part of 170 degrees.
