Another recipe I found on the Food Network and I have made this several times and I am always asked for the recipe and asked to bring it to more family/friend gatherings!!
It is also great to take the roasted chicken and toss them on the grill for a few minutes!!!!

Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

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!!

How to Make Roasted/Grilled Buttermilk Chicken

Step-by-Step

  • 1Place the chicken drumsticks in a large freezer bag, and add the buttermilk and 1/4 cup of oil.
  • 2Add the bruised garlic cloves to the bag with the crushed peppercorns and salt.
  • 3Sprinkle 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.
  • 4Leave the buttermilk marinated chicken in the fridge ideally overnight or out of the fridge for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours.
  • 5Preheat 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.
  • 6Drizzle 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.
  • 7I 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!!!
