HOW TO MAKE GARLIC AND PAPRIKA CHICKEN
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 425 degrees F.
Step 2: Heat the olive oil in a small skillet. Once the oil is hot, add the garlic, smoked paprika, red pepper flakes, and herbs to the skillet. Cook over medium heat for about 1 minute, making sure not to burn the garlic.
Step 3: After cleaning the drumsticks, dry well and season with salt and pepper.
Step 4: Over the drumsticks, pour the olive oil mixture. Toss to coat.
Step 5: In a 9 x 13-inch baking dish, place the drumstick. Put in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 45 minutes or until the chicken legs are completely cooked.
Step 6: Once done, serve the garlic and paprika chicken along with your favourite side dish and/or salad. Enjoy!
You can use regular paprika if you cannot find smoked paprika.
Feel free to use the spice blend with any type of chicken. Simply adjust the cooking time accordingly.
Cool the chicken completely, then keep it in an airtight container and store it in the fridge for up to 3 to 4 days. Pop in the microwave to reheat once ready to eat.
On a baking sheet, place the drumsticks and freeze. Then, transfer in a freezer bag or an air-tight container and store in the freezer for up to 4 to 6 months. The night before serving, thaw in the fridge, then reheat in a 350 degrees F oven until the chicken is warmed through.
