  1. Like most chicken recipes, this one is extremely easy. To begin with you need to heat your grill or grilling pot. Take a small bowl. Mix chipotle with sugar, garlic powder and salt/pepper to taste. Add grated orange zest.
  2. Take another bowl and put chicken legs into it. Sprinkle the poultry with the oil. Toss everything so that the legs are covered in it. Add the mixture of spices and toss everything one more time. Is you have some free time, leave this spiced chicken in the fridge.
  3. Grill the chicken for 20-30 minutes. When you’re done, transfer the poultry onto a plate. Sprinkle everything with the juice of 2 oranges. Chop spring onion and use it to decorate your chicken supper.

This chicken dish is a budget friendly meal. Cook it for your friends and serve it with rice, pasta or any vegetable salad you like. This yummy chicken is traditionally served on a pillow of rice.

 Here are several more pieces of advice to make your new dish perfect:

  •         Most often, we use chicken thighs for cooking this chicken dinner. However, you can replace it with the juicy breasts. Preheat the oven beforehand. Bake the chicken fillet at 425 F for 15 minutes. It will develop a crispy coating. However, poultry will still be juicy inside. When it’s half-baked, continue cooking the inner;
  •         If you have enough time and like spiced food, use more marinade. Leave the poultry in the marinade for several hours or even overnight;
  •         You can change the amount of spices used. But we do not recommend skipping the orange zest. This is the ingredient that makes this chicken dinner that awesome.
