Total time: 
Serves: 2
  • 4 chicken drumsticks (with or without skin)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1-2 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
  • 3-4 cloves garlic
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
Let's get started!
  1. In a cup whisk together the olive oil, paprika, salt, black pepper and crushed garlic, then add 1-2 tablespoon Sriracha sauce, depending how hot and spicy you like your meat. (I added 1½ tsp sauce and the chicken was not overly hot).
  2. Wash and trim the chicken drumsticks and place them into a zip top bag or food container. Pour the marinade over the chicken, remove the air from the bag and close securely. Carefully shake the bag to coat well the chicken.
  3. Marinade the chicken for at leat 3 hours and up to 24 hours into the fridge.
  4. Preheat the oven to 200°C | 400 ℉, lightly grease a baking pan.
  5. Place the marinated drumsticks into the pan, pour the leftover marinade if there's any, add more garlic if you desire and cover the pan with a foil.
  6. Bake the chicken for 50-60 minutes, then remove the foil and roast for another 10-12 minutes.
  7. Serve hot with salad.
