My daughter is obsessed with drumsticks. Whenever I cooked chicken, I make sure to use drumsticks alone most of the time. I have so many chicken recipes, but this simple recipe is my most favourite. It’s easy, straightforward, and quick. Not to mention, this recipe is budget-friendly, family-approved, and a kid’s best friend. Crazy good, you’ll not mind getting your hand all greasy!
Lemon and garlic-infused chicken. This recipe is surely a must-try and for keeps. Feel free to add a little hint of sweetness to your already amazing chicken dinner by serving this with maple roasted carrots on the side.
10 to 12 chicken drumsticks
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, minced
1/4 c. olive oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons fresh lemon zest
1/4 c. fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon paprika (optional)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
HOW TO MAKE LEMON AND GARLIC CHICKEN DRUMSTICKS
Step 1: Place all the ingredients (fresh parsley, olive oil, garlic cloves, fresh lemon zest, fresh lemon juice, paprika, dried oregano, and freshly ground black pepper) except for the drumsticks in a bowl. Season to taste, then mix well.
Step 2: With sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, season the drumsticks. In a marinating container, place the drumsticks, then pour over the lemon-garlic marinade. Put the lid on and allow the chicken to marinate for at least 2 hours or up to 8 hours.
Step 3: When ready to bake, prepare the oven. Preheat it to 425 degrees F.
Step 4: From the container, remove the chicken and transfer them to a baking dish, then put in the preheated oven to bake for about 30 to 35 minutes, turning once halfway.
Step 5: Remove from the oven when done and serve the chicken garnished with fresh parsley. Enjoy!
