Ingredients

  • 10 chicken drumstics
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tsp paprika
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • rind of 1 lemon
  • salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees celsius approx 400 Fahrenheit
  • Line a roasting pan with baking paper (you don't have to but it does make clean up easier)
  • Place the drums in the roasting pan, keep them single layer with just a little space between each
  • In a small bowl whisk together the marinade, oil, paprika, garlic, lemon rind and salt (you can use a whisk or fork, you just want it well combined
  • Pour the marinade over the drums, I use a brush to spread it evenly
  • Bake in the hot oven for 45 mins, if you like a crispier  skin, at the 40 min mark baste the drums with the pan juices and pop your oven on grill for the final 5 mins of cooking
  • Serve

Notes

  • Paprika gives a lot of colour but little to no heat. This recipe is delicious with either sweet or smoked paprika, but if you are using smoked the flavour is a lot stronger. Personally, I prefer it, but if your family are not used to smoked paprika I would try sweet paprika first.
  • I serve this with a 50:50 cauliflower potato mash and green vegetables
  • If your chicken drumsticks are quite wet when you remove them from the packaging, pat them dry with a paper towel before marinating them.
  • Use a hot oven, and make sure it is pre-heated to the correct temperature before cooking the chicken drumsticks.
  • If you like chicken drumsticks with crispier  skin, at the 40 min mark baste the drums with the pan juices and pop your oven on grill for the final 5 mins of cooking
