  • 1/3 Cup Olive Oil
  • Juice of One Lemon
  • 2 Teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • 2 Teaspoons Onion Powder
  • 2 Teaspoons Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Soy or Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon Paprika
  • 10 Chicken Drumsticks


  • In a medium bowl whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, soy or Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, pepper, and paprika.
  • Add the chicken drumsticks to a large zip-top bag and pour the marinade over the chicken.  Close the bag and massage the marinade into the chicken for a few seconds.
  • Refrigerate the chicken in the marinade for at least 30 minutes.  For best flavor allow the chicken to marinate for 2-12 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  Line a large baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • Arrange the chicken in an even layer on prepared baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes.  Flip the chicken and cook for an additional 5-10 minutes, until cooked through.


**Chicken should reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees before consumption.
