Grilled Creole Chicken

We enjoy Creole and Cajun food. Unfortunately it’s been hard to find really good restaurants that cater to New Orleans style cuisine in our area. We can recommend a few in nearby Philadelphia – Catahoula Restaurant and Beck’s Cajun Cafe, but there’s still nothing like home-cooked! The first thing to any good Creole cuisine is the seasoning. These grilled chicken leg quarters are marinated in a Creole Rub that hits just the right spot! Give ’em a try and you’ll taste what I’m talking about…

Creole Rub
2 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 tablespoon ground thyme
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/2 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 tablespoon cumin
1/2 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon chipotle chili pepper
1/2 tablespoon onion powder
1/2 tablespoon basil
1/2 tablespoon oregano

Heat your grill to 500 degrees. Using indirect heat, grill chicken approximately 45 minutes until chicken is cooked through but still nice and juicy.

    1. I agree – it’s really hard to find a good Creole restaurant! That’s why I make my own – my whole family loves this type of food. I love experimenting with all different types of cuisines so they’ve learned to eat and join it! 😀
