Pressure Cooker Grilled Barbecue Chicken Legs

July 2, 2020

Any time that we have a party with kids, these barbecue chicken legs are on the menu. It is everyone's favorite! And I always make extras because the adults love them just as much. I love how you can always find chicken legs on sale in large family packs. I recently found them for .79 a pound and loaded up my freezer with them. It is the perfect party food to feed a large group.

I found that cooking the chicken legs first in the pressure cooker makes it SO much easier! When I used to just grill them, it took forever to cook fully. Who wants to stand around a hot grill in July? Now it makes entertaining so much easier! I just cook them ahead of time in the pressure cooker - so that I know that the chicken legs are fully cooked through. Then, right before dinner is served, we just warm them up on the grill with our favorite barbecue sauce and voila! Dinner is served! Couldn't be easier!

This would be a perfect dinner for your family's 4th of July barbecue!

Pressure Cooker Grilled Barbecue Chicken Legs


1 cup of water

Chicken legs

Kosher salt


Garlic powder

Your favorite barbecue sauce

  1. Season the chicken legs with salt pepper and garlic powder. Make sure that you season all sides.

  2. Put one cup of water into the pressure cooker and add a rack so that the chicken legs will be elevated.

  3. Add the chicken legs to the pressure cooker. Standing them up and layering them in a circle.

  4. Cook under pressure for 16 minutes and let the pressure cooker do a natural release.

  5. When you are ready to serve dinner, fire up the grill to a medium high heat.

  6. Add the chicken legs to the grill when it is nice and hot and baste with your favorite barbecue sauce.

  7. When the skin of the chicken leg starts to get nice and crispy, flip to the other side and baste with more barbecue sauce.

  8. Repeat this until the chicken legs are nice and crispy and full of that yummy barbecue sauce.

This is a summertime favorite!

Doesn't cooking them this way make it a breeze?! Now you can enjoy time spent with your family and friends!
