Grilled Chicken Thighs and Legs with Saffron and Lime


12 chicken legs and 12 thighs

1/2 cup of olive oil

3 large onions, grated

1 teaspoon of saffron threads

salt and freshly ground pepper

3/4 cup of fresh lime juice


Wash and dry the chicken. Place in one or more glass or ceramic dishes. Combine the remaining ingredients, reserving a 1/2 cup of lime juice. Pour the marinade over the chicken, toss to coat. Cover and marinate for at least 15 hours in the refrigerator. Bring to room temperature before grilling.

Just before grilling pour the rest of the lime juice over the chicken. Brush the grill with oil and place the chicken on it. Grill for 20 to 30 minutes, turning a few times.
