Herby drumsticks

Herby drumsticks

Chicken drumsticks have never tasted better than they do lathered in these incredible Nici Wickes marinades. Go Moroccan-style or opt for a zingy and herby alternative - or why not give both a try?


  • 12 chicken drumsticks
  • handful fresh coriander leaves and 1/2 a juicy lemon

Moroccan marinade

  • 1 tsp each ground coriander, cumin, ginger and cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • squeeze of orange or lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp olive oil

Herby marinade

  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tsp each dried thyme and oregano
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • zest and juice of a lemon
  • 3 tbsp olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 180ºC.
  2. Make three deep cuts in each drumstick.
  3. For each marinade, mix together the ingredients and rub over and into 6 drumsticks.
  4. Arrange in a single layer in an oven dish and bake until golden brown and cooked through – about 45 minutes.
  5. Before serving, add torn coriander leaves to the Moroccan drums and a squeeze of lemon juice to the herby drums.
