Marinated Baked Chicken Drumsticks Recipe

Prep Time: 10 minutes
marinade time: 40 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 1 hours 35 minutes


  • 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.
Recipe Notes
  1. This could be marinated overnight. The taste will be only deeper and richer.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. It is great with pork, veggies, and fish, too. Sometimes, I add ginger to the marinade or scallions.
  5. 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.
