Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

Spoonacular is not responsible for any adverse effects or damages that occur because of your use of the website or any information it provides (e.g. after cooking/consuming a recipe on spoonacular.com or on any of the sites we link to, after reading information from articles or shared via social media, etc.)

Zinfandel and Sparkling rosé are great choices for Barbecue Chicken. Fruity, low tannin zinfandel is great for any sticky, saucy barbecue chicken dish. If you're not feeling red wine, a sparkling rosé will work too. One wine you could try is Dry Creek Vineyard Old Vine Zinfandel, Wine. It has 5 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 32 dollars.

Instructions

  1. Create brine solution by dissolving salt and sugar in water and adding garlic. Place chicken legs in a large non-reactive bowl and pour brine solution until chicken is fully submerged.
  2. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  3. Combine all BBQ sauce ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce heat and let sauce simmer uncovered for at least 30 mins (longer if you want it to be thicker), stirring often.
  5. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  6. Line a large cookie sheet with aluminum foil.
  7. Remove chicken legs from brine solution and pat dry; arrange in one layer on cookie sheet.
  8. Using a pastry brush, brush first layer of BBQ sauce onto chicken.
  9. Bake for 15-30 mins while basting with additional BBQ sauce.
  10. Turn chicken legs over, baste with more BBQ sauce and cook for additional 15-30 mins or until internal temperature reaches 180-degrees on an instant-read thermometer.
  11. When chicken legs are done, garnish with minced scallions.
