Since last night’s dinner was a fail, I was on the hook to come up w/ something more palatable to the family.
I’m marinating chicken drumsticks in a yogurt – spice- and Turkish masala marinade. Will update w/ recipe and reviews!
Everyone seemed to like this new recipe, so here goes!
10 chicken drumsticks
1 1/2 cups yogurt
1/4 cup Turkish red pepper paste
2 tbsp garlic-ginger-jalapeno paste
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp turmeric
small handful fresh parsley leaves, chopped
1) Mix all marinade ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add the drumsticks, and mix to coat well.
2) Marinate the chicken for 2 – 4 hours in the fridge. Take out the chicken about 45 minutes before you are ready to bake.
3) Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place the drumsticks on a baking sheet, and bake for 15 minutes.
4) Dot some butter over the drumsticks (optional step) , reduce heat to 350 degrees, and bake for another 10 – 15 minutes until done.
