  1. Preheat grill to 425ºF.
  2. Prep chicken legs (leave the skin on) by fully coating each leg with 1-2 teaspoons of dry rub. Use your hands to rub into each part of the leg and make sure that every part is fully coated.
  3. Spray your grill grates with nonstick cooking spray and then grill chicken legs directly on the flame at 425ºF for around 15-20 minutes or until the legs have reached 165ºF internally. Rotate the legs every 5 minutes.
  4. Remove chicken legs from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes before eating.


  • Don’t skimp on the dry rub. It’s what makes these legs crunchy and delicious!
