REQUESTED:: Drunk Chicken Legs (Def Made that up!)

Hey Beauties!!

This will be a quick post, but it was requested a few times that I share my recipe (which does not exist) for this chicken I made last week. I was kinda surprised folks were interested because I thought it looked pretty regular but hey I'm glad it looked good :).  Luckily I took a few pics AND I recorded most of my prep--which I will link below. Just for those who don't know, I rarely ever cook with recipes and even when I do I normally don't follow them. *kanye shrug* No seriously the only time I truly follow recipes is when I am baking. And baking is more a science than anything so it's kinda necessary to get your ratios and mixing right. Ok, tangent done.

Most of the ingredients used

Ingredients Used:
Yoshidas Original Gourmet - About a tablespoon
Minced Garlic - About a tablespoon
1 Bottle of Red Stripe
Jerk Seasoning - About a teaspoon. More or less depending upon how much spice you like. If you're cool like me you love some kick.
2 packs of Chicken Legs
Red Onion - 1/4th
One Orange
Fresh Cilantro - Maybe a tablespoon. Really up to your preference
Uncle Wrey (Wrey And Nephew Jamaican White Rum) - About a capful
Other dry seasonings (totally up to you what you use) Pics of what I used are below

I took the skin off of the chicken, but this is totally up to you. I don't need the fat and I wasn't grilling the chicken so didn't need it. I used red stripe because it was the darkest beer I had in the house, you can certainly use whatever you have on hand. After adding all of the ingredients I added the beer last, then covered and placed in the fridge for about 24 hours. This isn't necessary but I knew I would be busy and wanted to prep while I had the time. Plus, some extra time for flavors to marinate never hurts! You will notice that salt and pepper is missing. I don't season with salt and pepper (besides egg whites). I don't find it necessary with the herbs & spices I generally used when cooking. And plus I like to keep my sodium intake to a minimum because high blood pressure and cholesterol run in my family. #yallcare

As far as cooking goes I really wanted to grill them BUT it was cold outside last weekend and well I just ain't got time for that so in the oven they went.
