I LOVE grilling season! Seriously… everything tastes so much better when it’s grilled! 😀 With that being said, I thought I’d share this flavorful marinade for chicken drumsticks! Good stuff! …And keep in mind that this marinade would also be great on chicken breasts, wings and more!
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon dried oregano (Fresh would be even better!)
3 Garlic Cloves, pressed or minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 to 2 1/2 teaspoons salt
A few grinds of freshly ground black pepper
8 to 12 chicken drumsticks
* Also, for a variation of this marinade, you could instead sub lime juice for the lemon juice and fresh cilantro for the oregano. So good too!
Whisk all ingredients (through the black pepper) in a bowl. Pour marinade into a large Ziploc bag and add the chicken drumsticks. Marinate for at least 30 minutes. We marinated our chicken drumsticks for 24 hours and they ended up being super flavorful, so it’s definitely worth taking the time to marinate them for as long as possible. Then throw those bad boys on the grill! 🙂
