Grilling w/ Bri: grilled BBQ chicken legs & grilled cheesy foil potatoes

The weather was amazing Sunday so for the first time in a while, I didn’t mind standing in front of a fire pit. I dumped a bunch of insta light charcoal in the grill and boom, fire. Side note: I’d have to say this insta-light brand from Krogers was some of the best burning charcoal I’ve ever bought.


I love grilling sides in foil and I love using whatever I have in my fridge, so I took a couple of jumbo potatoes and sliced them really thin.  Placed them in foil and seasoned with garlic & onion powder, chili powder and pepper, then tossed with cheddar cheese.  I decided to grill 30 minutes before dinner time, so I didn’t have time to marinate the chicken like I normally would.  I just seasoned them really well with Cajun spice & pepper.  Both went onto the ready coals and then the magic began.  About 10 minutes into the grilling, I added about 2 tablespoons of butter to the potatoes.  Once the chicken was almost ready, I covered them in sweet baby ray’s BBQ sauce (don’t get me started on my Boyfriend’s love of this sauce) then let them caramelize a bit.  I paired this with buttered brussels sprouts (I try to eat something green most meals, so I steamed a bag in the microwave) for a really great meal!  Amazing and super simple.
