When grilling chicken legs, it's important to cook them over medium-high heat to ensure they cook evenly and don't dry out. Be sure to monitor the internal temperature of the chicken to prevent overcooking.

Finally, don't forget to let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before serving. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, resulting in a more tender and juicy chicken leg.
