“Although it seems a bit retro, Green Goddess dressing is experiencing a well-deserved revival as chefs and home cooks discover its charms. It makes a wonderful marinade for chicken legs. Who doesn't love a recipe with four ingredients?”

  1. Place the chicken legs in a large resealable plastic bag. Combine the Green Goddess dressing as well as the parsley and paprika. Pour over the chicken legs. Refrigerate for 2 to 8 hours.
  2. When ready to cook, set up your grill for indirect medium high 350 degree heat, and preheat, for 10 to 15 minutes. Or you can smoke them, I like to use maple wood for poultry or mesquite is good too.
  3. Drain the chicken legs. Arrange the legs directly on the grill grate and grill indirectly, turning once, for 40 to 50 minutes, or until the legs are golden brown and cooked through. Then grill over direct heat for 5 minutes to add a little "char" flavor, moving them around cause you don't want them to burn. Serve at once. (Can also be served cold, but the skin will lose its crispiness.).
