Go-To Grilled Summer Drumstix


Everyone needs a go-to recipe for Chicken Drumsticks.  Especially one that isn’t time-consuming!

So wonderful to have these on hand in the summertime.  Grilling is what you want to do when it’s beautiful out.  Along with picnics and lunch at the beach.  Whether it’s a cold drumstick to gnaw on for your lunch, chicken salad sandwiches, or slices on a Caesar salad, this chicken is so versatile you will be thrilled with the possibilities!

Let the savory adventure begin!


Start by folding over the edges of a large freezer bag, as shown above.


Add 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped, fresh oregano,


1 teaspoon lemon zest,


2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice,


2 tablespoons of the best olive oil,


1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt,


and 2 minced garlic cloves.  Grind in about 1/2 teaspoon fresh black pepper.


Add about 10 chicken drumsticks to the bag, squeeze out the excess air and seal it.

Move the chicken pieces around in the bag to coat with the marinade.

Marinate in the refrigerator for up to 2 days, turning once in a while.  Or marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Grill on medium-high heat, browning on all sides, about 30 minutes.
