So without any further delay, lets get on to the recipe.
Garlic & Paprika Chicken
Recipe from: Jo Cooks
6 chicken drumsticks
1/4 cup olive oil
4 cloves garlic, grated
1 tbsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp red chilly flakes (optional or to taste)
1/2 tsp dried oregano
Salt, to taste
Freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
Preheat the oven to 200ºC.
Wash and pat the chicken drumsticks dry. Season with salt and pepper.
In a small skillet or saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat.
Add the garlic, smoked paprika, chilly flakes and oregano to the oil and cook for 1 minute. Do not burn the garlic.
Pour this marinade over the chicken drumsticks and mix well making sure that the chicken is evenly coated with the spices.
Place the drumsticks in a single layer in a baking dish and bake for about 40 minutes or till the chicken legs have cooked through.
I served this up with some lemon orzo with asparagus.
