Let's Make It
Reserve 1/4 cup parsley for later use. Mix remaining parsley with next 5 ingredients until blended.
Loosen skin from leg quarters. Reserve half the dressing mixture for later use; rub remaining onto chicken meat under skin. Refrigerate 2 hours.
Heat grill to medium heat. Grill chicken 40 to 45 min. or until done (165ºF), turning occasionally and brushing with half the reserved dressing mixture for the last 10 min. Meanwhile, cook rice as directed on package, omitting salt.
Add cheese and remaining parsley to rice; mix lightly. Brush chicken with remaining dressing mixture. Serve with rice mixture.
Chicken can be marinated up to 24 hours before grilling as directed.
How to Check Meat and Poultry Doneness
The easiest way to ensure that cooked meat or poultry is done is to check the internal temperature. Using an accurate food thermometer will take away the guesswork. Simply insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the meat or poultry, avoiding any bones if present. For whole poultry, insert the thermometer into the thickest part of one of the thighs, again taking care to avoid any bones.
