Chili Lime Marinated Drumsticks

My plan was to marinate this for at least two hours, but people showed up earlier than planned so I was only able to marinate the chicken for an hour. If I had marinaded it longer the flavor would of came through more. But the flavor the chicken did have was good and the meat was so tender and moist.

Marinade from Recipezaar


1 cup olive oil
3 fluid ounces red wine vinegar
4 ounces lime juice (freshly squeezed preferred)
2 tablespoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon red cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
3 dashes hot sauce
3/4 teaspoon onion powder
20 chicken drumsticks


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Mix marinade ingredients together.

In two gallon bags split up the chicken and place one cup of marinade in each bag. Seal the bags well, shake and let your chicken marinade in the refrigerator. Make sure to move the chicken around in the marinade every 15 or so minutes.

Cook for 25 minutes, flip and cook another 25 minutes.
