Cover grill; cook 16 to 20 minutes, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when thickest part is cut to bone (at least 165°F). Brush chicken legs generously with sauce, turning to coat evenly.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

If you prefer a spicier sauce, add 1/2 teaspoon red pepper sauce, or to taste, to the tomato-salsa sauce.

This sauce would also be good on hot cooked appetizer meatballs or on grilled chicken wings. Season wings with salt and pepper. Grill 9 to 11 minutes, turning once, until chicken is no longer pink, brushing with sauce and turning frequently during last 1 to 2 minutes of grilling.
