A tasty marinade for chicken the whole family will love. Use plenty of herbs and swap around to vary the flavour depending on what is available.
Herbed Chicken Drumsticks
2 Chicken drumsticks per person
A handful each of fresh parsley, mint and oregano
You can also add other herbs depending on what you like or have on hand such as rosemary, sage, basil, thyme, lemon balm etc - the more the merrier
1 small red onion diced
2 Tbsp Fish sauce
Juice of a lemon
3 cloves garlic crushed
1 small red chilli seeds removed and finely chopped
1 Tbsp tamari
2 Tbsp olive oil
½ tsp sea salt or Himalayan salt
Place all of the marinade ingredients into a blender and pulse until a paste is formed.
With a knife cut slashes into the meaty part of the chicken drumsticks. Place in a roasting dish and spoon over the marinade and with gloves on massage the marinade over the chicken making sure you get it right into the cuts.
Cover the chicken and place in the fridge for 1-2 hours. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celcius. Pour ½ cup of water into the baking tray to make sure the marinade doesn’t burn. Roast for 30-40 minutes until the chicken is golden and the juices run clear when the thickest part is pierced with a knife.
This chicken is also great on the barbeque but make sure it is cooked more slowly. Always check it is cooked right through and is not pink in the middle.
