Chicken leg marinade?

Grillinois Posts: 165
I’m doing a quick cook Thursday for the weekly horseshoe match. I was thinking about a Pok Pok marinade for some legs.  Could anyone recommend another 24 hour marinade for chicken legs?

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Goya Mojo Criollo, marinate 4-24 hours, 400° raised direct, cherry wood for smoke. Not hot, but great flavor. Some thighs...

    If you want/need less sodium, make your own mojo criollo...


    1 cup Naranja Agria (sour orange) juice (if you can find it)

    If not, substitute 2/3 cup fresh lemon juice and 1/3 cup orange juice

    10-12 garlic cloves (one head)

    1 tsp salt (recipe said 1 tsp, I used ¾. Will try ½ next time)

    1 tsp pepper

    1 tsp oregano

    ¼ cup olive oil


    Add all ingredients to blender and blend for 30 seconds.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    I do a dry rub on my legs, similar to what I do with wings.

    Thanks for the suggestions.  @Carolina Q I  haven't used Mojo Criollo in a while...I might grab a bottle and go that route.
