Peri Peri Chicken Drumsticks

A Portuguese dish with its roots in Angola and Mozambique, this red pepper recipe is a must for all spice-lovers. To dial down the heat, remove the seeds from the peppers to make this a dish fit for the entire family.

  • Ingredients

    12 chicken drumsticks (12)

    1 cup Peri Peri sauce (250 mL)

  • Directions
    1. In a large resealable bag, mix chicken drumsticks with peri peri sauce. Marinade for minimum 1 hr, or overnight in the refrigerator.
    2. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
    3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place a wire rack on top. Using tongs, remove drumsticks from marinade and place on wire rack. Discard any remaining marinade from the bag.
    4. Cook drumsticks for 35 – 45 mins, flipping each drumstick halfway through. Cook until skin is golden brown and crispy, and the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).
    5. Serve drumsticks with extra Peri Peri sauce on the side for dipping.

    Tip: These are excellent cooked on the barbecue too!
