Total Time : 1 Hr 25 Min


Serves : 10
  • 10 Chicken Drumsticks skin removed 1 large lemon juiced and zested 1/4 cup olive oil 2 teaspoons garlic powder 2 teaspoons salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 1 teaspoon paprika 1 teaspoon dried oregano


  • 1- Pat chicken dry and place into a 1-gallon Ziploc bag. 2- In a small bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients. Pour over chicken and seal the bag, squeezing out as much air as possible. Massage marinade into the chicken. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight. (If all you have is 30 minutes, that's fine - just remember the longer the marinade time, the more tender and juicy the chicken). 3- When ready to cook, let chicken come to room temperature (about 20 minutes). Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Arrange chicken on a foil lined baking sheet. Bake, uncovered, for about 20-25 minutes. Flip chicken pieces and cook another 10 minutes, or until chicken reaches an internal temp of 165 F and is no longer pink. 4- Serve immediately. Baked Lemon Chicken
