Who knows? Maybe if more people try them cooked this way, drumsticks will start getting more popular. You see, influencers don’t promote them as much- in fact, the last “influencer” who couldn’t stop eating them was Fred Flintstone back in the day!

So, let’s get started.

For this recipe, you’re going to need:

  • 9 chicken drumsticks
  • salt

  • paprika
  • paprika mixture
  • ginger powder
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 potatoes
  • toothpicks

For the salad, you will need:

  • Cucumber
  • 1 tomato
  • salad mix
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • lemon juice
  • 100g feta

Prepare a marinade with the salt, marjoram, paprika mixture, ginger, garlic, olive oil, and lemon. Use most of it to “massage” your drumsticks and then put them in a bowl covered with cling film. Set them aside for 30-40 minutes.

In the meantime, prepare the potatoes. Peel and rinse the potatoes, and cut them as shown in the video. Place them on a baking tray covered in parchment paper, and stick three toothpicks on each potato slice.

Take the drumsticks and place them on top of the potatoes with the help of the toothpicks.

Cook for thirty minutes at 200 degrees Celsius.

While waiting for the drumsticks to cook, prepare the salad.

Cut the cucumber and the tomato into slices, and add them to the salad mix. Add the olive oil, lemon juice, and feta, and mix well.

Once the 30 minutes have passed, take out the baking tray and brush the drumsticks with the remaining marinade. Cook for another 15 to 20 minutes.

Then, you’re ready to assemble the dish.

Remove the toothpicks, and serve three drumsticks and three potatoes on a plate. Add some salad on the side, and you’re good to go!

YouTube users have absolutely loved this recipe. Some have even tried it already, and they only have positive comments to make about it.

“I tried this recipe recently. The chicken came out delicious. Tasted flavorful and browned quite well. Thank you for demonstrating this recipe,” someone wrote.

Others gave some tips about the potatoes, which can really come in handy.

“Just make sure the potato pieces are thick enough to hold the chicken legs up for the whole time they are in the oven. As the potatoes get softer, if they are not thick enough, the leg could fall.”

Indeed, this comment makes perfect sense.

In any case, the recipe looks delicious and it certainly is simple and easy to make. It doesn’t take a chef to prepare it.

So, just keep it in mind the next time you have guests over for dinner!
