Yummm! Juicy and rich with flavour, Baked chicken drumsticks with lemon is one of my favourite dinner recipes.

People often ask about cooking chicken drumsticks,  “how long to cook them for?”

This may differ depending on the size and temperature of your oven. If you are going to have your oven at 180ºC, then you may allow for about 40 minutes to 1 hour in the oven.  

Now let’s get to the recipe!

 

Ingredients you need for Baked Chicken Drumsticks with lemon

6 Chicken drumsticks

1 Tablespoon Extra virgin olive oil

1 Tablespoon Sesame oil

1 Tablespoon Chinese five spice

1 Tablespoon Soy sauce

1 Tablespoon Honey

Juice of one lemon

1 Tablespoon lemon zest

1 Tablespoon ginger paste

4 Shallots cut into 10 cm lengths

1 Tablespoon sesame seeds

 

INGREDIENTS Baked Chicken drumsticks with lemon

INSTRUCTIONS | BAKED CHICKEN DRUMSTICKS WITH LEMON RECIPE

Step 1

Preheat oven to 180ºC fan forced (200ºC conventional) Line an oven tray with baking paper. Cut small parallel lines in each drumstick. 

The reason you score each drumstick is to allow heat to penetrate easier into the fleshy part of the drumsticks shortening the cooking time. Lining the baking dish with baking paper will also aid you in the cleaning process later on. 

Step 2

In a small frying pan add the sesame seeds and toast them for a few minutes. Be mindful that they can burn easily. Put the toasted sesame seeds aside.

Step 3

In a bowl add, the EV olive oil, sesame seed oil and Chinese five spice, then rub each drumstick with the mixture and arrange each drumstick in the baking tray. While arranging each drumstick in the baking tray make sure there is enough space for the shallots later. Put the tray in the oven and cook for 15 minutes.

Step 4

Now take a small pot, combine soy sauce, honey, lemon zest and juice  and grated ginger and let this simmer for a few minutes on low heat.

Step 5

Probe into the thick part of a drumstick with a food thermometer till each reaches 60ºC. Add the shallots to the baking tray with the drumsticks. Baste each drumstick with the honey soy mixture and put it back into the oven.

Step 6

Keep basting the drumsticks with the honey soy mixture every five minutes till the temperature reaches 75ºC.

 

Step 7

Scatter the toasted sesame seeds on the drumsticks(made in step 2) just before serving. Serve and enjoy!
