Chicken Leg Quarters & Zucchini Pron
 
After eating a lot of beef ribs, baby backs, spares, and pulled pork the last couple of weeks my wife asked for a weekend of a little healthier cooking and just chicken and fish for the protein. Today's chicken cook consisted of 4 leg quarters seasoned with the Rub Co's Hot Wing Rub and either Simply Marvelous Cherry Rub or Big Butz Chicken Dust.

The leg quarters on the left side were topped with Cherry Rub and the ones on the right with Chicken Dust:

Finished them up direct:

Took some zucchini that had been soaking in some balsamic vinegar:

Grilled them for few minutes:

Topped with some parmesan & romano cheese:

It is still eating healthy when you eat more than you should and you're stuffed?

Thanks for looking!

Great looking meal John... I've been eyeballing chicken leg quarters lately at the store and this gives me good reason to pull the trigger. Also love zucc on the grill, but have never tried the balsamic route. Time to do that too!

Nice job,I love the zucchini sticks! After all that pork for dinner I feel healthier just by looking at those pics!

Thanks for the compliments! Here's a link to the recipe for the zucchini.http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,1750...243195,00.html

It was simple enough for me to not mess it up & mild enough for my MIL's tastes. I substituted Parmesan & Romano as it was a "what do we have in the fridge?" mod.
