Ingredients

12
chicken drumsticks (approximately 3 pounds total weight)
2 c
buttermilk
1/4 c
plus 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 clove
garlic, bruised and skins removed
1 Tbsp
crushed peppercorns
1 Tbsp
maldon salt, sea salt or 1 1/2 teaspoons table salt
1 tsp
ground cumin (or to taste)
2 Tbsp
pure maple syrup (add more if desired)
all spices are really left to your desired taste!!

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place the chicken drumsticks in a large freezer bag, and add the buttermilk and 1/4 cup of oil.
2
Add the bruised garlic cloves to the bag with the crushed peppercorns and salt.
3
Sprinkle in the ground cumin and finally add the maple syrup, and then squish everything in the freezer bag around to mix the marinade and coat the chicken.
4
Leave the buttermilk marinated chicken in the fridge ideally overnight or out of the fridge for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours.
5
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Take the chicken pieces out of the bag shaking off the excess marinade, and then arrange them in a roasting tin lined with foil.
6
Drizzle over the 2 remaining tablespoons of oil, and then roast in the oven for about 30 minutes, or until brown, even scorched in parts, and juicily cooked through.

I love to take the roasted chicken and place them on the grill for a few minutes just to give them some charring and that great charcoal pizzazz!!!
