We really had great friends circle and enjoyed to the max whenever we have chance. The kids were to young to remember but it was fun filled evening outside my apartment with Ram & Tintu family.

12 chicken legs
½ cup olive oil
1 tsp sea salt
½ tsp ground black pepper
2 tbsp teaspoon chilli powder
½ tsp cumin
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
5 cloves garlic, chopped
3 tbsp chopped onion
½ cup chopped fresh coriander leaves
1 cup soda

Preparation Methods:

Place chicken legs into a large zip top bag. Pour olive oil into a glass bowl. Mix together salt, pepper, paprika, cumin, and cayenne pepper and add to olive oil. Add garlic, onions, and parsley. Mix together well with a fork. Slowly add soda as it will cause the mixture to foam and bubbly.

Pour marinade over the chicken legs in the zip top bag. Remove as much air as possible from the bag and seal. Turn the bag from side to side to make sure all chicken has been coated with the marinade. Allow the chicken marinade to sit up to few hours or overnight in the fridge for best results, turning the bag over every few hours to keep the chicken coated.

Brush the grill grate with olive oil to coat. Heat the grill to medium heat. Place chicken onto the grill and cook, turning as needed to cook both sides brushing the marinade. Remove chicken to a serving platter and allow to rest 3-5 minutes before serving.
