Garlic, Lemon and Herb Rubbed Chicken — Weekend Cookout

Related To:

This summer, Food Network’s Grilling Central is packed with recipes for the entire family’s taste buds, boasting the best in burgers, dogs, chicken and more all season long. But with so many recipes, where do you start? Each Friday, FN Dish is giving you a complete menu that is stress-free, and for dinner this weekend, we're ditching the barbecue sauce and marinating chicken in fresh herbs, garlic and lemon juice.

If you're looking for a budget-friendly meal on the grill, purchase chicken legs -- they'll also cook up faster. While the total cook time for these babies is more than two hours, that is inactive time -- time that the chicken is soaking up the flavor of the marinade in the refrigerator. Once the chicken is placed on the grill, dinner will be on the table in less than 30 minutes.

Drink: Rose Sangria
