Garlic CHICKEN DRUMSTICKS with lemon and parsley

I must've driven away all the vampires in the neighbourhood with the aroma of garlic when cooking this dish today.Would be a real shame if they were as good looking as Robert Patison ;-) (I think I just watched too much Twilight!)

Anyway this recipe will suit the taste of real garlic-lovers!(including me of course!)
Very, very, veeeeery tasty!


Serves 4


750 g chicken drumsticks
1 large lemon
4-5 garlic cloves, crushed
fresh parsley,chopped
rapeseed oil
freshly grounded salt and mix pepper

1.Preheat the oven 200 C/180 C fan/ gas mark 6

2.Wash the chicken drumstick and dry with paper towel.Grease each one with oil,cover with garlic and place in a deep baking dish.Squeeze half the lemon and drizzle it over the chicken.Season with salt and pepper.Put few lemon slices around it and bake for 30-35 minutes.

Serve with freshly chopped parsley.


  1. Sounds great, looks like you added some whole heads of garlic to the pan.

    1. Thanks Robert.Yes I did, mainly for the decoration but baked garlic is delicious too ;-)
