Bud Light Chicken

I love grilling when the warm weather rolls around. If I could grill all meals I would. Hey kids, grilled cereal for breakfast! I love the smokey charred flavor the grill adds and I love the absence of pans from cooking on the stove. It’s a win win.

The party guests: chicken legs, cumin, limes, garlic, cayenne pepper, fresh parsley, paprika, salt, pepper, bud light lime and olive oil.

Mix up all the marinade ingredients and dunk those chicken legs in. I stuck them in the marinade the day before and let them hang out for about 22 hours. I gave them a shake and a swirl overtime I opened the fridge, just to help them get evenly marinated.  I recommend at least 8 hours of marinade time to really let those flavors soak in.

Heat up your grill and get to cooking. I lightly oiled my grill grates before cooking the chicken. I didn’t want to lose that wonderful chicken skin! Grill time is about 25 minutes. I turned them 4 times to get a nice char on all sides. You want the internal temperature to be 170 degrees. If you don’t have a meat thermometer handy, when the juices run clear you’re all set.  Starve with a fresh squeeze of lime juice.


Bud Light Chicken


8-10 chicken drumsticks

1/2 cup olive oil

2 tsp paprika

1 tsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp cayenne

1 tsp ground black pepper

1 tsp garlic, minced

Juice of 1 lime

1 bottle of beer

handful of chopped fresh parsley

Salt to taste


  1. Mix together all the ingredients together to make a marinade. Give the marinade mixture a good stir to mix it all together and taste it. Then add some salt according to your taste but don’t be skimpy.
  2. Massage the marinade into all the pieces of chicken. Let the chicken marinate for at least a couple of hours in the fridge, overnight would be best to let the chicken absorb all the flavors.
  3. Once the chicken has marinated simply throw them on the grill (make sure to oil the grill so the chicken doesn’t stick) for 25-30 minutes turning over the pieces until the internal temperature is above 170F.
  4. Serve them up hot and garnished with a squeeze of lime.
