On Sunday night, my husband and I made Grilled Lemon-Oregano Chicken Drumsticks (click here for the recipe on the Bon Appetit website), and I was reminded what a fantastic little recipe it is.
We made it for the first time last summer, as it was from the August 2009 issue of Bon Appetit.
Who can argue with juicy grilled drumsticks, lightly flavoured with salt, fresh oregano and lemon?
And it’s so easy and family-friendly. I could see the recipe easily doubling and tripling for a larger crowd.
You can start marinating the drumsticks well in advance of grilling, too – the recipe calls to marinate the chicken for 30 minutes or up to two days!
Drumsticks are marinated in a mixture of lemon juice, fresh oregano, pressed garlic, olive oil, kosher salt and lemon peel, then grilled for about 30 minutes until golden brown on all sides.
Serve and watch people smack their lips!
