All you need are chicken drumsticks and a few other simple ingredients to create this super easy and flavorful dinner the whole family will love.
8 chicken drumsticks
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Salt and pepper
How to Make It
Position oven rack about 8 inches from heat source. Preheat broiler; line a broiling pan with foil. Pat drumsticks dry and trim off fat. Arrange in a single layer on prepared pan.
Melt butter with garlic and lemon juice over medium-low heat. Season drumsticks with salt and pepper. Brush each lightly with lemon butter.
Broil, turning often and brushing with lemon butter, until chicken is browned and crisp and has no traces of pink juices when pierced, about 30 minutes. Cool slightly. Serve drumsticks with dipping sauces.
Excellent, super easy recipe. I would suggest doubling the sauce so you have plenty to use for basting--especially if you use larger drums. Served with a rice dish and simple salad. Will make again and would serve to guests.
Marinade was good, but could use more lemon flavor. Maybe if it was actually marinated for a while to absorb some of the lemon flavor. I used 3 leg quarters, cut into 6 pieces. Served w/salad & cheesy brocoli rice.
