Ingredients :

  • 4 lbs chicken drumsticks (or chicken legs)
  • For the marinade
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice (or lime juice)
  • 5 Tbsp honey (or maple syrup)
  • 6 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 inch ginger root (peeled and grated, or use 1/4 tsp powdered ginger)
  • ½ tsp black pepper (freshly ground)
  • 1 tsp kosher salt (plus more to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

Instructions :

  • In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients for the marinade and mix with a fork. Set aside.
  • Place the chicken in a Ziploc bag. Add the marinade. Expel as much air from the bag as possible and close. Marinate overnight and up to 24 hours, or at least several hours.
  • If baking drumsticks immediately, massage them in the bag with the marinade for about 5 minutes. This will be sufficient to get a good amount of marinade and flavor inside the meat.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Transfer the drumsticks and all of the marinade into a baking dish.
  • Bake uncovered at 375 degrees F for 45-50 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 185°F and the drumsticks are nicely browned on top.
  • Carefully remove from the oven and serve hot, with pan juices and your favorite side dish (e.g. mashed potatoes, rice, etc.)
