Oven Grilled Chicken Drumsticks

This is one of the easiest ways of preparing chicken in an oven grill. The marinade used, Mamasita’s BBQ marinade, is all you need. You can also prepare the chicken ahead of time by soaking it in the marinade and store in the refrigerator overnight. This could be cooked in the grill the following day. I find this recipe so convenient to prepare if I want a lazy evening and to relax while it cooks away in the oven grill. To complete your meal, serve with your favorite sauce and rice. Enjoy the aroma and every bite! :)

Servings: 3 persons

Preparation time: 3 hours soaking in the marinade

Cooking time: 35 minutes


  • 700 grams of free range chicken drumsticks
  • 100 ml Mamasita’s BBQ marinade

Cooking Procedure

  • Marinate the chicken drumsticks in 100 ml Mamasita’s BBQ marinade for at least 3 hours (overnight is recommended). Set aside in the refrigerator.
  • After 3 hours soaking the chicken, remove the marinated chicken from the refrigerator. Preheat oven grill at 220 degrees Celsius for 5 minutes.
  • Put the chicken in a baking tray on a rack (set aside the marinade) and grill for 30 minutes (turn chicken after first 10 minutes). Watch regularly and avoid risk of burning the chicken.
  • After 30 minutes on the grill, baste chicken with some of the marinade and put it back on the grill for another 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. (To confirm well done, cut the thickest part of the meat, clear fluid should come out!).
  • Turn off oven grill. Remove the chicken from the oven and let it stand for 3-5 minutes before serving.
  • Serve grilled chicken with your favorite sauce. (I usually prefer to use its own juice!)
