    Serves: 10 

    • 330ml beer
    • 4 tablespoons dark brown soft sugar
    • 4 tablespoons sea salt
    • 4 tablespoons paprika
    • 2 tablespoons ground black pepper
    • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    • 250ml teriyaki sauce
    • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 10 chicken legs

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Extra time:1hr marinating  ›  Ready in:1hr35min 

    1. Stir the beer, sugar, salt, paprika, pepper, cayenne and teriyaki marinade together in a bowl.
    2. Rub the chicken legs thoroughly with the vegetable oil. Poke several holes in the flesh of the chicken legs with a fork; arrange in a single layer in a glass dish. Pour the marinade over the chicken legs; marinate in the fridge for 1 hour.
    3. Preheat barbecue for medium heat and lightly oil the cooking grate.
    4. Remove the chicken from the marinade and shake off any excess. Discard remaining marinade.
    5. Grill the chicken on the preheated barbecue until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, turning one-quarter turn every 5 minutes, 20 to 25 minutes total. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the leg, near the bone should read 82 degrees C.

    So juicy & yummy! Definately a keeper! Some members of my family have sodium restricted diets so I did not use any Teriyaki marinade nor salt, but I did add 1/4 c. soy sauce. I also let the chicken drumsticks marinade for closer to 3 hours and everyone couldn't get enough! Full stars!  -  03 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was really good! I used less pepper, paprika, and salt (about a tablespoon of each) and NO cayenne pepper. I also used chicken breast. But was delicious! Will defiantly make again!  -  02 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Pretty easy recipe.. I gave it four stars because I omitted all the salt and had to bake since we couldn't get the grill to start. The chicken was very moist and the marinade was pretty tasty but didn't penetrate the chicken like I thought it would. Would try again when it can be grilled.  -  04 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
