Note: I partnered with McCormick Grill Mates on this post for a great dinner recipe. This is not a required post. This post is my way of sharing a great recipe using Grill Mates Montreal Chicken Seasoning with you. #WalmartGrillMates #AvailableAtWalmart
I’m always looking for new ways to make chicken – especially easy ways for dinner. If you are like me you eat a lot of grilled chicken breast, rotisserie chicken, and chicken nuggets. Most of the time grilled on the stove top. Am I right?
Dinner that is easy and tasty… now that is a bonus!
Chicken is one of the easiest and healthiest meals to make and when you are cooking for your family – fast, easy, and on the table is the most important. And tasty is a bonus! Well if you are looking for a fast, easy, tasty chicken recipe for the family – you have come to the right place.
These chicken legs that I made with McCormick’s Montreal Chicken seasoning turned out absolutely amazing – juicy and really flavorful. Even my sister ate them for dinner (which is a shocker)! And she is super picky!
I marinated raw chicken legs in in a marinade of McCormick’s Seasoning, Dijon Mustard, Lemon, Olive Oil, and Garlic!
Then I baked the legs for 25 minutes, flipping the legs once at 400 degrees fahrenheit.
Because of the Dijon Mustard in the marinade, I chose a salad kit with the Dijon Vinaigrette to compliment the flavors.
You can find the McCormick’s Grill Mates seasonings in the spice aisle in your Walmart – and let me tell you – the Montreal Chicken Seasoning is amazing. So start there! McCormick seasonings can also be found through Walmart Online Grocery: https://bit.ly/WalmartGrillMatesPrint
• 12 Chicken Legs – Raw
• 1/3 cup Olive Oil
• 2 Tbsp McCormick’s Grill Mates Montreal Chicken Seasoning
• 2 Tbsp Minced Garlic
• 4 Tbsp fresh parsley finely chopped
• 1 large lemon juice
• 1/4 cup dijon mustard
1.In a small bowl, combine all of the marinade ingredients and stir or whisk together until well blended.
2. Transfer chicken legs to large mixing bowl or Ziploc bag. Pour the marinade over the chicken legs and coat well. Cover with plastic wrap and put in fridge for 30 minutes. (the longer you leave the chicken in the fridge, the better the flavor – you can marinade up to 24 hours)
3. Bake at 400˚F for 25 minutes on both sides of the chicken leg or until chicken is cooked through (internal temperature of 165°F). Note: For a really crispy outer layer – broil on 500˚F for 2-3 minutes, or until desired crispy-ness.
