Minty Baked Chicken Drumsticks

This is a simply marinated baked chicken recipe. It is perfect as starters for a party or as a snack for kids after school. All will love biting this juicy drumsticks. The mint marinade seeps into the chicken and leaves a tasty flavour in it. Have this hot with tomato sauce. :)

You need
  1. Chicken legs (without skin) - 1/2 kg
  2. Mint leaves - 1 bunch
  3. Ginger - 1 piece (when chopped gets 2 tsp)
  4. Garlic - 2 big cloves
  5. Green chilli - 4
  6. Curd - 2 tsp
  7. Salt to taste

  • Grind together ingredients 2 to 7 into a very fine paste
  • Marinate the chicken legs with the above paste.
  • Keep in refrigerator for 30-40 minutes.
  • Preheat oven at 200 degrees
  • Lay the marinated chicken legs in an oven dish and pour the marinade over it if any left. 
  • Cover with an aluminium foil and bake in oven for 30 minutes. At this stage there'll be some gravy in the dish that oozed out from chicken
  • After 30 minutes remove foil and bake for another 20-30 minutes until all the gravy dries off and chicken turns slightly crisp outside.
  • Serve with tomato sauce.
