These legs get a triple blast of flavor: first from a soak in lemon juice and salt, then from a pungent marinade of spices and yogurt (which also tenderizes the meat), and finally from a bit of butter brushed on at the end of cooking. Removing the skin from your chicken legs before grilling may seem like a waste of potentially crisp deliciousness, but it helps the marinade penetrate the meat more easily, as does making deep slashes in the meat before marinating.

Easy and delicious. I already had boneless skinless thighs on hand, so used them with excellent results. Grilled off the fire for first 20 minutes (10 per side), then another 8 mins or so direct heat to get a nice char.
Absolutely delicious !
Chicken was crispy and moist, delicious. Maybe could have been spicier?
