I absolutely love these chicken legs butterflied because the binder, seasonings, and sauce get on all sides and inside of the leg, making the meat taste much better and more flavorful. It helps to have them butterflied because they cook evenly, and they don't roll around the cooking grill grates. This is definitely one of the ways I like to make chicken legs.
Rinse and clean the chicken legs with cold water and pat them dry with a paper towel.
