  1. Take all marinades in a bowl and whisk well to make a thick marinate paste.
  2. Wash the chicken legs and pat dry and scratch the chicken with knife so that the spices go inside
  3. Now place the chicken pieces into the marinate, coat the chicken well and then refrigerate for 1 hour
  4. Now preheat oven at 200 degree Celsius and put the chicken inside oven after placing it on a griller.
  5. Grill the chicken 20 mins, 10 mins for each side. Every 5 mins brush oil to the chicken ( optional, health conscious can escape this oil brushing)
