Each Serving of Roasted Garlic Chicken Drumsticks Contains 132 Calories. 

  • Chicken drumsticks 3 lbs 
  • Garlic Powder 1 tbsp
  • Red chili powder 1 tbsp 
  • Cumin powder 1 tsp 
  • Coriander powder 1 tsp 
  • Black pepper ½ Tsp
  • Garam Masala 1 tsp 
  • Salt 1 Tsp 
  • Nutmeg ground ¼ Tsp

To marinate the chicken drumsticks:
  • Open up the package of chicken drumsticks and remove the skin if present. 
  • Wash them under tap water and pat dry with the kitchen napkin. 
  • In a bowl, add chicken drumsticks, garlic, coriander powder, cumin powder, garam masala, black pepper, nutmeg powder, red chili powder, salt, and lemon juice. 
  • Mix well, cover and keep aside for 30 minutes. 

To Oven Roast the Chicken Drumsticks:
  • Preheat oven at 400 F. 
  • Fill up the oven-safe tray with hot/boiling water. 
  • Now, place the marinated chicken on the rack(or you can use a vented oven-safe tray).
  • Place the chicken rack on the water-filled bottom tray. 
  • Now bake chicken at 400 F for 25 minutes or until it's fully cooked. 
  • Then turn over and broil for 5 minutes to get an extra crunchy and crispy texture. 
  • Take out of the oven, and it's ready to serve. Enjoy!!! 

My Take:
  • If you don't have a vented tray or rack, then you can use a foil tray and make some slits with a knife and then place the chicken, so your vented tray is ready to use. 
  • For a change, you can add 2 Tsp Cajun seasoning and adjust the salt quantity accordingly. 
  • You can prepare the recipe with chicken thighs instead of drumsticks, or use a combination. 
  • With the chicken drumstick, you can also add potato slices, green peppers, and onions. 
  • While the chicken drumsticks bake, you can make whatever sides you like.
