Recipe type: Entree
Serves: 4-6
  • 6-8 chicken drumsticks
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 garlic head, cloves peeled and smashed
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • ½ - 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1-2 teaspoons chicken seasoning
  • salt, pepper
  • 1-2 sprigs fresh thyme (or rosemary)
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl, cover and refrigerate while it's marinating. You can do this up to 24 hours in advance. If you don't have time to marinate, that's ok too, just proceed with the rest of the recipe, but you will get the best results if you do give the chicken some time for all the flavors to infuse into the chicken.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350-400 degrees. It doesn't have to be exact. You can cook it along with something else.
  3. Place the chicken with the onions, garlic and herbs into an 8x8 inch rimmed baking dish, or any other rimmed baking dish that will fit the chicken. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil or a cover and bake for about 45 minutes.
  4. Uncover and cook for another 45 minutes until the chicken is tender and the golden. The longer you cook it, the more tender it will become. You can broil it at the very end if you want the skin to be more golden.
