Recipe by: Frankie


3 lbs chicken drumsticks
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 tsp cumin
4 large garlic cloves, peeled
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup water


1. Add the chicken to a resealable gallon bag, pour the marinade over the chicken and seal the bag. Massage the marinade and chicken in the bag then refrigerate for at least 8 hours.

2. Lightly oil a roasting pan, place the pan in the oven and preheat the oven to 375 F.

3. When the oven is preheated remove the pan from the oven and place the chicken drumsticks as spread out as possible in the roasting pan and pour any leftover marinade over top of the chicken.

4. Bake for 40 minutes then flip the drumsticks. Cook 20 to 30 more minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken reads 165 F.

5. Remove the pan from the oven and allow the chicken to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
