Spicy Chicken Drumsticks

This spicy chicken drumstick recipe is a regular meal prep of mine which consequently is a BBQ regular during the summer too.

This is pretty much why I started this blog because I wanted to meal prep my favourite foods which I did not think was possible or practical many years back.

The ingredients and instructions are the same but the cooking method will highly depend on the time of the year.

Aside from the BBQ grill, you can cook chicken legs on a griddle pan, frying pan or oven tray.

It will still smell and taste just as good, but the key is to allow the chicken legs marinate for a few hours.

This recipe is great because just imagine an incredibly tender bite combined with spice and flavour.
