Greek Grilled Chicken Legs

I can’t say my Dad was a big fan of Greek recipes since he was old-school and not very adventurous. However, my husband and father-in-law have always loved Greek foods.

The chicken is very simple and is perfect for those who don’t care for sauced barbecue. It also appeals to those who are cooking on a budget. And isn’t that everyone during these days of inflation?

I like to serve this chicken with a tzatziki sauce, grilled vegetables, salad or horiatiki and maybe some grilled potatoes or a rice dish. The chicken does seem to go with everything.
