Elevate this humble go-to cut of poultry for everyday family meals with this sensational marinade.
6 to 8 good quality chicken drumsticks
For the marinade:
½ cup soy sauce
¼ cup grated apple
2 tablespoons maple syrup OR runny honey
Pinch of ground clove
1. In a Tupperware or glass bowl, combine the ingredients for the marinade and mix them well. Place the drumsticks in a rectangular Tupperware. Pour the marinade over them and give them a shake; allow them to sit in fridge for at least an hour. (I tend to do this the night before and let the drumsticks marinate overnight).
2. When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 175 degrees Celsius.
3. Place the drumsticks on a wire baking rack and cook them for approximately 35 to 40 minutes.
4. Allow cooling, and then wrap the ends of each drumstick with foil. If you like, tie a wicker cooking string around the ends of each stick over the foil end.
