Chicken drumsticks are fab party and picnic food – easy to eat, super tasty and loved by children and adults. What’s not to like? My fail safe recipe couldn’t be simpler and always go down an absolute treat.
Make up your marinade first: for every 10 drumsticks mix together the freshly squeezed juice of half a lemon, half a lime, one tbsp of honey and one tbsp of soya sauce or tamari for GF. Pour all over the chicken and give it a good massage to ensure each piece is thoroughly coated, then arrange on a non-stick baking tray.
Preheat the oven to 180C/375F and roast up the chicken for about 40 mins, until cooked through and the skin is nice and golden. There will be lots of lovely juice at the bottom of the pan, which I like to reduce down to a delicious gravy to be used at a later date.
