Lemon and Garlic Chicken Drumsticks

Set the oven … but don’t forget it

A family favorite, even for the kids. Chicken, garlic, white wine and lemon. I use drumsticks for this recipe because they’re tender and flavorful. And since it’s baked in the oven, you don’t have that messy spattered oil you’d get from searing or frying in the pan. In just 30 minutes, you have a great main dish!

Lemon and Garlic Chicken Drumsticks


  • 8 chicken drumsticks
  • 2 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1 lemon, well scrubbed
  • 2 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 c white wine

As always

  • Olive oil, about 1/4 c
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • Place drumsticks on baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Distribute garlic across chicken.
  • Zest lemon onto chicken (use a second lemon if you’d like!), then slice lemon and remove seeds.
  • Squeeze lemon slices onto chicken before placing on drumsticks.
  • Add white wine.
  • Bake 30 minutes, turning at the 15-minute mark, until golden brown.
  • Place on serving platter — don’t forget the roasted lemon slices — and watch them disappear!

Deliciously simple.
