Herb grilled chicken legs

So you are on the right road to healthy "you". You are stocked and locked and you realize you are caving juicy and succulent on the inside with that smoky grilled taste on the outside chicken with a hint of herb so you head straight for the home dried basil . Well when you make purchases at a wholesale market you often get a bunch of basil leaves which is way too much and would probably be required if only you were feeding a village. You throw in a few ingredients and oohh 2 hours of marination. Proper grilling on both sides, a side salad and a delicious dinner.

What was used

3 chicken legs + 1 extra piece of medium sized chicken
Salt as per taste
2 tablespoonful of  olive oil need not be extra virgin
Freshly ground pepper as per taste
1 heaped tablespoonful of dried basil + dried dill
4 to 5 medium sized garlic cloves (medium by Indian standard) which would mean 1 to 2 fat sized garlic cloves grated
Pinch of chili flakes or cayenne pepper

Start by making slits on each side of the chicken
Start by rubbing it well with salt and oil , pepper , chili flakes and the herbs. try and stuff the grated garlic in the slit pockets and let it get marinated for 2 hours to 3 hours. Grill both sides well as desired. Some like the taste of extra grilled chicken, some prefer it lightly grilled. I personally love the smoky flavour but not when it is too smoky.

Toss up a salad and enjoy a healthy meal.
