Roast Lemon and Garlic Drumsticks

Posted on

These drumsticks are perfect for making in bulk – and then whipping out of the freezer on days when life is just too busy to cook from scratch – or when unexpected guests come to visit.

This recipe has been one of the most popular on Uforic Food to date – and I believe that’s becuase they are just sooooo delish! Enjoy~

Roast Lemon and Garlic Drumsticks

  • 12 chicken drumsticks
  • 3 tbs of olive oil
  • the zest of 1 lemon, grated
  • 3tbs of butter
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 handful of fresh parsley

Method:

Pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees (c). Place the drumsticks into a shallow baking dish, season with salt and pepper, drizzle with the olive oil and add the lemon zest. Toss the drumsticks, using your clean hands, through the mixture.

Place in the oven and cook for 40 minutes.

Once the drumsticks are cooked through, remove them from the oven and cover with foil to keep warm. Meanwhile, heat the butter in a pan over a low heat and add the juice of half a lemon, along with the garlic. Do not let the garlic burns. After a minute of gentle cooking, add the parsley and some salt and pepper, to taste, right at the end.

Turn off the heat, place drumsticks on a serving platter, or in freezer containers, and drizzle over the buttery sauce.

There you have it. These should freeze well for up to three months.

To reheat, preferably thaw out first, then reheat by tossing them around in a frying pan, over a medium heat. However, you can just pop them in the microwave.

These would be great served with my warm potato salad and some crusty bread.

If you have any other recipes that are good for freezing and would like to share them with everyone, just like Kristy did – email it to me – I’d love to pop it on Uforic Food … lisa.foreman_media@yahoo.com.au
