Ingredients
  • 6 chicken drumsticks
  • 1 Tbl fresh grated ginger

Instructions
  1. Place chicken in an oven safe baking dish.
  2. Combine all remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
  3. Pour marinade over chicken, turning meat to ensure it is thoroughly coated.
  4. Allow chicken to marinate for at least 15 minutes at room temperature, but ideally cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours so flavors can really absorb into chicken.
  5. Preheat your oven to 375º 15 minutes prior to baking.
  6. Pop your chicken directly into the oven.
  7. Roast for 25 minutes, or until internal temperature of drumstick reaches 165º
  8. Turn your broiler to high.
  9. Broil chicken for 2-3 minutes, or until skin of drumsticks gets golden and a little crispy.
