Method

  1. With a sharp knife, make a few slashes in each drumstick. Mix the remaining ingredients in a bowl, season to taste. Add the drumsticks, rubbing the mixture well into the meat. If you have time, cover and chill for 30 mins.
  2. Remove the drumsticks from the marinade, shaking off the excess. Cook them on the barbecue for 20-25 mins, turning occasionally, until cooked through.

Didn't like these at all. Chicken legs took longer than 30 mins to cook and so everything else was ready too soon. Didn't like the spice mix.

Loved this, done it with chicken thighs. Really juicy & cooked for 30minutes & served with the healthy coleslaw & Gordon Ramsay's oven chips.

Such a yummy way to spice up chicken! I had some fresh chillies from my mum's garden so I added them with a a bit of garlic and some ginger and roasted them in the oven. Delicious!

Made this for dinner tonight it was ok bit bland for me think if I make it again I'll up the chilli powder a good bit. The other half liked it but for me it just lacked some oomph !!

Enjoyed by all at a recent get-together - drinks and party food. Used skinless, boneless thighs and baked in oven at 200 Fan for 20-25 minutes. Tasty!

Just made this in the oven with chicken breasts, didn't have time to stand for 30 mins, and it was delicious. The chicken was tender and juicy, did cook for an extra 5 minutes as I think I left a bit too much marinade on and it was a bit wet in the cuts in the chicken.

YUMMMMY

Used skinned chicken thighs and baked it in the oven. Served with homemade potato salad and it went down a treat. Will definitely try this recipe on the BBQ once the weather permits.

I used diced chicken breast for kebabs but didn't have any turmeric so couldn't get the golden colour. Also, only had seeds and not the ground spices so had to bash them in the pestle and mortar and think they needed a bit more grinding. Was still tasty and very tender though.

would do again but with chicken breast instead as you dont get much meat on drumsticks

So simple but tastes fantastic. I used on chicken breast skewers and it worked really well.
