You can use either skinned or skinless chicken for this grilled chicken garlic recipe. I used skinless chicken legs today. The recipe is very simple for this garlic chicken roast and making an aromatic garlic sauce is the most important step. Later the sauce marinated chicken is first cooked in baking mode and then grilled for few minutes in the oven. For those who don’t have an oven, I will explain how to do this garlic chicken using a Tawa grilling.

As Christmas is coming around I thought of posting this simple chicken garlic roast, which can be served as a starter. Moreover, this roast may not need any fancy dip other than simple tomato ketchup.
