Marinated Baked Chicken Drumsticks

Marinated Baked Chicken Drumsticks

Marinated Baked Chicken Drumsticks is one of those dishes that do not require too much standing or spending time in the kitchen.

Honestly, it is an easy-peasy lemon squeezy recipe. I actually made two recipes out of this one, but I will first share a starter recipe.

I am working on a post for spicy, sweet and delicious chicken drumsticks. Needless to say, it was most definitely mouthwatering just like my Spicy Baked BBQ Chicken Wings.

Mhmm!!! So delicious.

Anyhow, since the Superbowl is around the corner, I can imagine that you already started to plan the menu for the party.

Of course, if you compare it to fried chicken, this one is a much healthier option to serve on the patty with your family and friends.

It is full of flavor and goes pretty much good with any side dish, especially rice and steamed veggies.

I will also have later this week a roundup. Many tasty options could be yummy to serve for your Superbowl party.

So stick around, it is gonna be a fun week ahead!

Furthermore, I would like to apologize for my short posts. It is not that I do not have the time to write a long post, maybe about my life.

But it is just one of those periods that you rather spend writing a short intro about the recipe than about everyday life.

Certainly, I do not wish to become boring. Above all, my life is somewhat monotone. It is just part of motherhood!

What chicken you could use with this marinade?

Chicken Wings: You could make it in the air-fryer just like I did this wonderful Zesty Rosemary Lime Chicken Wings,

Chicken Breast: I love sheet pan dinners. They are amazing to make especially if you have a large family or if you meal prep.

You can marinate chicken breast in this marinade and bake it. I did that many times with Lemon Herb Chicken and Veggies Sheet Pan instead of using other seasonings. I really love sheet pan dinners.

Chicken Skewers: My family loves food on the stick so my Chicken and Pepper Skewers would be phenomenal. You could marinate it, grill and serve over tasty rice, or cauliflower rice if you are on a low carb diet.

Delicious, finger-licking recipe for the best Marinated Baked Chicken Drumsticks


  • 8-10 Chicken Drumsticks
  • 1 tablespoon of oil or a good drizzle
  • Sprinkle seasoning for chicken or to taste such as Weber, McCormick, etc.


  • 1 cup Soy sauce light
  • 3 Garlic Cloves crushed
  • 1/4 Onion
  • 1/2 cup Chicken Stock (broth would work fine as well) low sodium
  • Juice of 1 to 2 Oranges



    1. In a large Ziploc bag, place chicken drumsticks. OR You can use a large mixing bowl, and just cover the chicken to marinate with plastic foil (film). You can take the skin off if you dislike. Pour in Soy sauce and drop crushed and peeled garlic, onion, and for a little kick and sweetness balance it with the juice of 1 orange. Close the bag, massage the chicken drumsticks with all the marinade for a few seconds to code everything.
    2. Put on the side and let it marinade for about hour or so (in the fridge), If you are using a large bowl, the same method, push the chicken under the marinade, so the liquid is above or at the same level as the chicken. Cover and place in the fridge.
    3. Do not leave it on the countertop if you will marinade the chicken for 30 minutes or more; you have to keep in the fridge


    1. Heat the oven to 425F/218C/Gas Mark 7. Lightly oil a large baking dish, use roasting grills, which work amazingly when you bake chicken. Take the drumsticks out of the marinade, pour a bit of oil, and massage the chicken, then season with seasoning for chicken; maybe a few sprinkles on each piece of chicken and arrange the drumsticks in a single layer.
    2. Sprinkle a little more of chicken seasoning and bake in the hot oven for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown and drumstick internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit/75 C.
    3. Serve it immediately with salad, roasted potatoes or perhaps steamed rice and broccoli.


    This could be marinated overnight. The taste will be only deeper and richer.

    This recipe is for a quick lunch or dinner fix, the taste is great regardless. SEASONING is really up to your preference, but keep in mind that chicken is marinated in a SOY sauce so you would not need much seasoning or salt. perhaps pinch or so on each piece.

    I use mostly KICK N CHICKEN SEASONING by Weber. Like they stated on their website, it has a citrus flavor, swimming alongside the mouthwatering spiciness of onion, garlic and red pepper with a hint of orange peel.

    It is great with pork, veggies, and fish, too. Sometimes, I add ginger to the marinade or scallions.

    You can use Chicken Thighs or wings or darker meat for this. If you would like to use chicken breast I recommend to cut it into strips OR bite-size pieces and saute in the pan on the stove after marination with a tablespoon of oil, cook until done/10 minutes if the pieces are thin or smaller.
