Shanghai-shire Chicken Legs

1 review, 4 star(s). 100% would make again

Ready in 45 minutes

I tasted the sauce by itself and wasn't sure about this dish but it was great on the chicken. My wife thought it would be great on chicken wings.


4 Chicken leg quarters; skin on
1/4 cup Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 cup HP sauce
1 tablespoon Brown sugar
1 tablespoon Lemon juice
2 teaspoons ginger; Minced
2 teaspoons Toasted sesame oil
1 clove Garlic; minced
1 teaspoon Chinese 5 spice powder; or ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Pepper
chives; Snipped

Original recipe makes 4



Preheat the grill to medium and grease the grate.

Marinate the chicken in the worcestershire sauce for 30 minutes.

Blend the HP sauce with the brown sugar, lemon juice, ginger, sesame oil, garlic and 5 spice powder in a microwave - safe bowl. Heat on high for 2 minutes, stopping to stir twice or until hot and bubbly. Reserve.

(You can bring it to a boil on the stove instead of using a microwave)

Sprinkle the chicken evenly with salt and pepper. Place on the grill meaty side down. Grill for 5 minutes or until well marked. Baste with some of the sauce. Turn the chicken and baste again with sauce.

Turn off the burner directly under the chicken, leaving other burner(s) on. Grill the chicken, covered basting occasionally, for 40 minutes or until very tender and an instant read thermometer inserted into the thickest portion of the meat registers 165F or 74?C

For a lower fat dish remove the skin before marinating.
