"This recipe was one I made on the fly one year and it was fantastic. Nicely blackened on the grill with a hint of sweetness."

  • Ready In

  1. Rinse chicken drumsticks, thighs, and wings with cold water, and place into a bowl. Pour in lemon juice and vinegar; mix in the cinnamon, nutmeg, and kosher salt until the chicken parts are thoroughly coated with the spice paste. Allow to stand, covered, for at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Grill the chicken pieces on the preheated grill until the meat is no longer pink at the bone, the juices run clear, and the spice-coated skin is blistered, well-browned, and blackened in spots, about 10 minutes per side. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the chicken should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Very different taste to the chicken using ground cinnamon. I made 2 types of grilled thighs for dinner, this one and 'Big Al's Chicken' and I preferred the taste of this one. I marinated the t...

easy to fix but it was not good the kids did not like this, I was really hoping for a new exciting chicken recipe, this one was a fail.

Had to substitute the lemon for lime and cooked on a grate on the stove. The texture of the mix was a little grainy and the taste was a bit overpowering. Suggest reduced vinegar and definitely c...

Easy to fix, but I will never make it again. I doused mine in bbq sauce but the cinnamon and apple cider vinegar didn't come together as well as I had hoped. Instead, it gave it a tang that was ...

Had to scrape off the coating then wash the chicken, it was that bad
