Hello my fellow travellers,
So yesterday I decided to experiment our dinner meal by baking chicken drumsticks. I wasn’t sure of what kind of dry rub seasoning to make, which is why I threw a bunch of spices on a plate hoping for good flavor.
Its safe to say that this is now one of my favorite recipes and I’ll be making it for dinner again tonight. It was that good, alhumdullilah. Its a simple recipe and really easy to whip up when you’re out of dinner ideas. My favorite part is the kick of oregano. It tastes great with salad and cauliflower rice.
4-6 organic drumsticks (I used 4)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried organic oregano
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp pepper
4 small cloves of garlic, crushed
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees celsius. Wash chicken drumsticks under water and dry with paper towel. Make sure you soak up as much moisture as possible – the skin will be crispier. Cut off any loose skin or bone.
- On a plate, mix salt, pepper, red chilli powder, oregano, and garlic. I used my fingers to get the seasoning mixed up (the texture is almost sand like).
- Place a grill on top of a baking sheet. Use a pastry brush to cover the grill with olive oil (or oil of your choice). Take the dry rub and cover the chicken legs.
- Bake for 35 minutes. Use a meat thermometer to check if the chicken is done (usually around 165 degree celsius)
Enjoy with a side of salad!
