2 they’re more flavorful . This is
now in regular in my house !!!I followed the recipe as close as I could. I always try to, at least the firsttime. However, I don’t use or keep onion salt or garlic salt, so I used onion& garlic POWDERS + a little table salt. (I did add a bit of cumin, from areview, to the spice mix, but DW picked it up right away & said, “It wasawesome, but leave the cumin out, next time.”) We both found ourselves pullingthe awesome, crispy skin off & treating it like another side-dish! This was,BY FAR, the best, most honest & simple chicken thigh recipe we’ve ever tasted!I may never even attempt to GRILL thighs again… no matter the weather!!!We’re already on the hunt for more $.99/lb thighs! Thank you so much,Nicole!!!Followed recipe exactly. Thighs were crispy and tasty. Don’t know how withthese ingredients the thighs become crispy, but they do. Easy recipe.
How do I tell whether my chicken drumsticks are done?
* The chicken should display at least 165°F or 74°C on an instant-read meat thermometer. This is actually the best and safe way to be sure. TIP: If you want your chicken drumsticks to have crispy skin, then aim for a minimum temperature of 185° F. * The waters should run clear and the chicken legs should no longer be bloody. * Cooked chicken legs or drumsticks as they are sometimes known will feel firm to the touch when pressed. Uncooked chicken drumsticks, on the other hand, feel soft. * The flesh at the thinner side of the bone on the chicken leg separates and pulls on towards the upper and wider side of the drumstick. This said, the best method however, still remains using a meat thermometer.
This recipe uses 7-8 chicken drumsticks. I like to double or triple theportion, if having visitors or if we are basically too hungry. If you chooseto make a batch, then use different trays or racks. I would say do not crowdthem too much otherwise they will not be crispy.We will also be using some salt, olive oil, turmeric and curry powder to makethe marinade.Ingredients
