Roasted Greek Chicken Drumsticks are delicious, tender, and full of flavor right out of the oven.
Greek chicken is by far one of my favorite things to eat.
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!
These drumsticks are incredibly delicious, super easy, and a great dinner party meal since they aren’t fussy and are inexpensive for a group!
