Roasted Greek Chicken Drumsticks

The combination of oregano, lemon, olive oil, and tons of garlic – it just goes so well with delicious, crunchy chicken.

We’ve been eating a lot of chicken thighs and drumsticks lately (they are so economical and easy!), and I wanted to make a good riff off a Whole Roasted Grecian Chicken  – but with drumsticks!

      Definitely adjust for your taste!

  2. Shannon says:

    If defrosting from the freezer should the marinade be used before or after it’s thawed? Also, is there a substitute for the cooling rack? I don’t have one Thank you!

    1. Katherine says:

      You can start marinating it while it is still frozen but the marinade wont soak in until it is softened.
