Delicious and juicy chicken drumsticks

After marinating, these drumsticks are instantly baked in the oven and become extremely soft and juicy. The high temperature makes the skin fine and crispy, and it only takes 20 minutes for the drumsticks to bake.

Make this marinade the night before and mix it with the chicken. Leave the drumsticks in the refrigerator overnight. And if you want less fat, you can remove the skin from the drumstick. But if you decide to take this step, cover the dish with aluminum foil so that the meat does not dry out.

Baked drumsticks can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat them in the oven to get crispy skin. A great trick for reheating meat, in general, is adding a bit of sparkling water in the pan in which you reheat it. This creates a sort of reaction and makes the meat taste fresh as if it just came out of the oven or off the pan.

Ingredients:

  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce with less sodium
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • A pinch of salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Ground red pepper (quantity as desired)
  • 8 chicken drumsticks

Preparation:

In a large bowl, combine the soy sauce, oil, garlic, and lemon juice. Season with salt, pepper, and a pinch of ground red pepper. Add the drumsticks to this mixture. Leave in the fridge to marinate the drumsticks for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
Preheat the oven to 230 ° C. Place the chicken on a large baking sheet and bake until the meat is browned and the internal temperature of the meat reaches 74 ° C. So bake for about 20 to 25 minutes, and at half the time turn the meat to the other side.
