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…
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
Grilled Creole Chicken
2 tablespoons Creole Rub
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 chicken leg quarters
Place chicken quarters in a large bowl. Season with creole rub and olive oil. Marinate for at least 10 minutes.
Heat your grill to 500 degrees. Using indirect heat, grill chicken approximately 45 minutes until chicken is cooked through but still nice and juicy.
Be sure to flip chicken occasionally to cook evenly.
Enjoy this juicy flavorful Creole Chicken!
