Spicy Chicken Legs

This recipe as given to me and as I give it to you says it serve 4. If your family is like mine one chicken leg a piece is not a serving. :) I double the marinade and make it four leg quarters cut into legs and thighs. I grill the thighs first and place them in the oven while the legs are in the grill pan. This means the thighs need about 20 minutes in the oven (I use a meat thermometer instead of time)
The result is a mildly spicy piece of chicken with good flavor. Would also be great grilled in Summer.
