WOW!!! WOW!!! AWESOME!!! When I saw these grilled beauties, I couldnt stop myself saying these words over and over again. I usually bake chicken drumsticks in oven but this was the first time we grilled it. This is one of the easy-breezy chicken dish that can be prepared almost effortlessly. There is a marination time, though, from 3hrs to overnight. It can be a good conversation starter and can even be served as a side dish.
It is a great favourite in my home. I normally add red chilli powder to the marinade but this time around I wanted to make it as hot as I can. So, I generously incorporated chopped green chilli and red chilli flakes along with red chilli powder to give it a kick....
I bet you would love it, the spice is just perfect and satisfied my spicy tooth.....:):):) I will definitely gonna make this again pretty soon, you never know, maybe comin weekend..lol
