Note: This recipe was developed using the Char-Broil Big Easy Oil-Less Fryer. If you are cooking using the Char-Broil Smoker-Roaster Grill you should cook with the lid open and the temperature set to High. You might also need to adjust the cooking time.
The Kick’N chicken I made on my Big Easy not too long ago really got me jonesin’ for more legs. These spicy roasted chicken legs on the Char-Broil Big Easy have a nice little kick to them. And they also have a wonderful buttery flavor kissed with a bit of citrus. Although I’m usually a split chicken breast guy, the Big Easy cooks any cut, such as legs, absolutely perfect.
Even if you like spicy, go easy on the cayenne first as you add it to the butter. But, don’t go too crazy. No matter what, these spicy roasted chicken legs are a treat that cook up in no time on your Char-Broil Big Easy.
Having a bunk bed basket makes it easier to cook just about anything on the oil-less fryer. It doubles the amount of cooking space.
Also try my nuclear chicken, made on the Big Easy.
