The Best Chicken Drumstick Marinade
The secret for this flavourful, juicy baked chicken drumsticks is the marinade which is packed with a variety flavour like, lemon, garlic, rosemary, olive oil and soy sauce. Also, the chilli flakes give this baked chicken drumsticks recipe a spicy kick. Moreover, the olive oil will keep the chicken drumsticks moist and prevents them from getting dry.
To give these drumsticks the tenderness and the wonderful flavour, you have to marinate them and keep in the fridge for a few hours or overnight; the longer time you marinate them, the better flavour you get. I like to prepare the chicken and let them marinate overnight.
