Grilled Marinated Chicken


Makes 8 servings


8 whole chicken legs (thighs and drumsticks attached) (about 3-1/2 pounds)
6 ounces frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
2 cloves garlic, minced


  1. Remove skin and all visible fat from chicken. Place chicken in 13X9-inch glass baking dish. Combine remaining ingredients in small bowl; blend well. Pour over chicken; turn to coat. Cover; refrigerate 3 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
  2. To prevent sticking, spray grid with nonstick cooking spray. Prepare coals for grilling.
  3. Place chicken on grill 4 inches from medium-hot coals. Grill 20 to 30 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink near bone, turning occasionally. (Do not overcook or chicken will be dry.) Garnish as desired.
