Spicy Baked Chicken Drumsticks

Spicy baked chicken drumsticks are an instant hit with the guests who visit our home. Unlike the chicken drumsticks served in a restaurant, these baked chicken drumsticks do not need any oil at all. Hence this recipe is a very healthy option for calorie conscious individuals. 

Chicken Drumsticks - 6
Curd (preferably hung curd or thick curd) - 3 tbsp

Method of Preparation
1. Wash the drumsticks and make slits on them.
2. In a bowl add the rest of the ingredients including the ground paste and mix well. 
3. Now add this mixture to the drumsticks and mix well so that, they get a good coating of the marinade. Let the chicken rest in the marinade overnight or for 24 hours. 
4. In a preheated oven at 350F place the drumsticks on a greased baking tray and let it bake for 45 min. 
5. After 45 min, turn the drumsticks over and cook for another 30 to 45 min or until they turn golden brown.

  10. I don't know why, because it's always in my house, but I tend to forget about marinating in yogurt. Silly of me because it's a fantastic tenderizer and it tastes great. Thank you for joining up at the blog hop at Two for Tuesday. This is a great recipe.
